the UK’s first actively
Formed in 2020 Anti Racist Cumbria’s mission is
“Tackling and ending racism through action and education to create a forward-thinking and actively anti-racist Cumbria; free from prejudice and systemic inequalities.”
In Cumbria, race-related hate crime has increased 41% between 2016 and 2019 and every day brings fresh evidence that our society is at a turning point. We believe our beloved Cumbria has an historic opportunity to become the UK’s first actively and openly anti-racist county where anyone who lives or works in Cumbria can succeed and live without fear of discrimination because of the colour of their skin.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
– James Baldwin
