Is Politics Racist?

Is Politics Racist?

Mon 24 October 2016 18:30-20:00 - TBC

An interactive session on BAME Representation in Politics and How to Campaign effectively on the issues you care about.

An insight into the state of the BAME community in Politics on a macro level followed by a discussion on how we as BAME people can overcome these barriers looking at examples of the past and focusing on different methods so each and everyone of us can begin to influence on a local and national level.

Open to all!


A little bit about YouElect:

YouElect is an independent not for profit NGO primarily focused on highlighting key concerns affecting the rights and the role of BME communities in the UK. We raise awareness of important issues discussed within the spheres of politics and academia.

In addition to this, YouElect aims to increase the representation of the British BME population within politics and the media through promoting political participation and encouraging the pursuit of careers within these fields.
