Solidarity Anti-Racist Resource Round-Up

admin - 11th June 2020

Over the past two weeks, 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. 

To that end, we are organising a month-long resource round-up during which we invite you to devote time, energy, and donations, if you can.

Over the coming 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 all the 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.

Later this month, we will also launch an open consultation on institutional reforms at the Law Faculty. The consultation will provide students with the opportunity to submit ideas, action points, and feedback on how to make the Faculty more inclusive.

In solidarity,
