JUSTICE 4 YOU

Racism and Immigration aren't in our history books. Yet the UK saw 47,571 racist 'incidents' last year alone, whilst immigrants have worked tirelessly to save thousands of lives in the ongoing Coronavirus Crisis. The UK Government fails to recognise the work of immigrants, leaving workers like Belly Mujinga to die without addressing the racism that she and countless others face. The Government is hiding the truth of our past and our people, and to tackle this we must push for an education system that embraces all cultures and identities. A better understanding will lead to a better future.

JOIN US in campaigning for equal representation in the National Curriculum, making a racially diverese education accessible to all.

The Fight for Equal Education


Create Awareness

Recognition and understanding of the need to extend education to include racial history, colonialism and immigration must be achieved within society. Having diffifult conversations and raising concerns on social media will engage society.

Lobby

Charitable organisations, pressure groups, MPs and Ministers must be contacted in order to put pressure on the UK Government to act. Liasing with political organisations and donating to charities will grow the cause.

Change Legislation

The Curriculum is limited on racial diversity. KS3 history has no inclusion of Black history, whilst georgraphy does not mention immigration once. This must be amended for better cultural understanding.

Changing the Curriculum Will Aid the Fight to End Institutional Racism

Did you know? Racial bias starts as early as preschool years.

Research from psychologists Tatum in 2003 and Winkler in 2009 suggests that children become aware of race and racial differences in their early years. Winkler's study found that preschool children may even exclude other children from their play because they are of a different race. Once these racial biases become ingrained within the child's brain, the likelihood of them holding racial prejudices later in becomes severely increased . The only way to effectively work to tackle these racial biases is to fix the current education system to include racial diversity and tolerance from a young age, and to begin to weave in Britian's colonial history, a diverse range of cultural history and immigration into the curriculum as the children grow older. Psychological changes in the perception of race, ethnic minorites and immigrants is needed in order to work towards a more accpeting Britian, and changing the National Curriculum for future generations will help achieve this.
