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.
