Stand Up To Racism Regional Events

Stand Up to Racism groups are hosting regional summits on “Confronting the rise of racism” around Britain.

These will be a day of discussion and debate to discuss how we can build the anti-racist movement in your local area. Details about speakers, workshops and plenaries will be available soon.

Some local Stand up to Racism groups are also considering holding public meetings on tackling the rise in racism. These could be focused on defending EU migrants, or challenging islamophobia.

If you’d like to get in touch with your local Stand Up to Racism group, or want to set up a meeting in your local area, please email us at
