The month of August sparked ongoing conversation around combatting racial injustice. The United States observed the 28th August 1963 anniversary of the historical March on Washington: where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. 57 years later, our community continues the movement towards freedom and equality globally.
At FDM, we strive to remain inclusive, combat unconscious bias and educate our community on how to remain an ally during this time. We encourage you to access the following educational resources:
"The 1619 Project" from the New York Times
White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack by Peggy McIntosh
‘That could have been me’ – Desmond Ziggy Mombeyarara on George Floyd’s death and police brutality in the UK
The global LEAD network will be hosting a quarterly meet-up in the coming weeks but in the meantime, keep an eye on your FDM email for updates from your local LEAD network.
