About the Act for Racial Justice Campaign
The NASUWT is building a campaign to challenge all forms of race discrimination, injustice and inequality in education.
The #ActForRacialJustice campaign was launched at the NASUWT’s annual BME Consultation Conference, which is now the biggest event for BME teachers in Europe.
The campaign has been launched partly as a response to findings by the Union showing that BME teachers are saying they believe they are being discriminated when it comes to pay progression, access to CPD, promotion prospects and increasingly being subject to capability procedures.
It also aims to address issues around the inequality in educational provision for BME pupils, unequal academic attainment among different minority groups and the wider problem of racism in society.
If you have experienced a problem at work, contact us on 03330 145550 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our dedicated Member Support Advice Team is able to speak to members in confidence.
