Solidarity Anti-Racist Resource Round-Up

admin - 11th June 2020

Over the past several months, millions of people have stood-up, spoken-out, protested, and fought against systemic racism and racial injustice in the United States, and across the world.

Black Lives Matter Oxford (BLM OX), the Refugee and Migration Law Discussion Group (RMLDG), the Feminist Jurisprudence Discussion Group (FJDG) and the Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH) stand firmly in solidarity with all people protesting against systemic racism, violence, and racial injustices. We also believe that we cannot stand idly by on the sidelines but have to actively commit to fighting systemic racism in our communities. 

We initially organised a month-long resource round-up during which we invited you to devote time, energy, and donations, if you can. This has been extended for another month.

We invite you to learn more about the vital work that community organisations and leaders are undertaking to fight systemic racism. We also invite you to actively support and donate, if you can, to the organisations that actively work to advance racial justice. We hope that you will widely circulate anti-racist resources across the University and the Oxford community, more broadly.

For the updated information about the round-up, organisations and resources visit here.

Many of these organisations, and others alike, have created useful guides that you can utilise to actively fight racial injustice in your communities in the long-term. We invite you to access these resources as well as readingspodcasts, and other materials on the recently-established Oxford Anti-Racist Platform.

An Anti-Racist Collective, formed by a group of students in the Law Faculty, also invites all students interested in organising, supporting, or learning about anti-racism efforts to attend a Faculty-wide Zoom call on Thursday, July 30th at 16:00 BST to discuss what actions we, as students, can pursue to advance anti-racist work across the Faculty. You can view the event and register here.

This will be followed by a student-led Open Consultation on institutional reforms at the Faculty, which will provide students with the opportunity to submit ideas, action points, and feedback on how to make the Faculty more inclusive. For more information please email anti-racism@law.ox.ac.uk.

In solidarity,
