At last night's district meeting, members passed a motion in support of the Black Lives Matter movement as follows:
The Leicester City District NEU stands united with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Foundation:
- in their horror at the manner and events that led to the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police officers and other unlawful deaths
- their mission to eradicate white supremacy
- anti-racist advocacy
- all other injustices such as institutional racism that have been committed to our Black members within our schools and wider community.
I'd like to start by drawing your attention to the comprehensive information on the NEU website connected to Coronavirus. If you have a query, please check there in the first instance.
We are also particularly concerned about the racial disparities in Covid-19.
• Download Ten things you need to know about racial disparities in COVID-19.
Please note that from 23rd March, Leicester NEU Officers will be home working and only available by email.
Jenny and Ian are available from Monday to Wednesday
Joseph and Jessica are available from Wednesday to Friday
