Black Lives Matter – Family Futures responds to the tragic killing of George Floyd and recent eventsPosted in: News
Family Futures stands in solidarity with all those experiencing racism. We are listening to the experiences of Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. We see you. We hear you and we will continue to listen. We recognise that recent shocking events are not new and are part of a wider systemic racism which is impacting our communities here in the UK.
We commit to educating ourselves and continually developing our services to increase understanding and awareness of racist beliefs and racial bias. The current events and the racism experienced in the lives of children and families we work with will need to be addressed and processed. It is time to acknowledge the heightened anxiety and pain felt by Black, Asian and minority ethnic members of our community and each play our part to give Black, Asian and minority ethnic children a future free of systemic racism and discrimination.
