Race and Faith Advisory Board
ABA is becoming increasingly concerned about reports of rising levels of bullying targeted at race and faith.
In a report as part of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry in 1999 by MacPherson, racism was defined as "any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person"
With funding from the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation we have set up a Race and Faith Advisory Board to share best practice and agree on collective action to stop race and faith targeted bullying in our schools and communities.
The Board is chaired by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and includes representatives from Aik Saath, Anti-Bullying Works, ATL, Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation, BIG award, Diana Award, Diversity Role Models, Insted Consultancy, Kick It Out, Kidscape, NCB, NSPCC, Office of the Children's Commissioner, Race on the Agenda (ROTA), Runnymede Trust, Show Racism the Red Card and Stonewall as well as leading independent campaigners in this area.
The board will aim to meet up to 4 times a year and share updates and information by email.
If you have resources related to race and faith targeted bullying that you would like to share, or would like to join the board, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you or someone you know are worried about bullying targeted at race and/or faith please don't keep it to yourself. Have a look at our advice pages about where to get help and don't forget this may constitute a hate crime and/or incident.
