Our Learning Journey: 2020
Here at Community Action MK we have been taking some time to share and learn as a team, what it means to be an organisation committed to social and racial justice. As part of Black History Month we made time to discuss how important it is that we move forward with a genuine desire to change the systems that affect Black individuals and communities. It has been important for us to look at issues and account for the range of views and perspectives that people have. We are a community focused organisation, and to allow us to support the community, we have to create a safe, open space where people can learn and share. Whilst recognising and embracing that discussions will continue to, and have, made us feel uncomfortable, they have also positively challenged us to unpack issues and learn. We hope this experience will help us support groups to think about how to explore and act on diversity and inclusion issues for their organisations, and lead the sector to be more antiracist, what better place to start than with our own team.
