An action from the recent WMRBMSOG meeting, was to circulate the Defining Black Leaflet. Please find this here.
In UNISON, Black is used to indicate people with a shared history. Black with a capital ‘B’ is used in its broad political and inclusive sense to describe people in Britain that have suffered colonialism and enslavement in the past and continue to experience racism and diminished opportunities today.
