Everyday Racism

Posted on: July 22nd, 2020 by Zoe Carassik-Lord No Comments

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd it feels like there is a turning of the tide with people waking up to the realities of racism BUT there is still so much work to be done.We had the honour of chatting to Natalie from @everydayracism_ about how you as young people can engage in this conversation and make a difference. Natalie used to attend Pie as a young person and it wasn’t long before she became one of our Trustees (the youngest trustee in the UK at the time), since then Natalie has worked on various projects with us and has remained a friend. She speaks honestly and powerfully about her own journey and what young people can do to start to act for positive, lasting change.
