Welcome to Developing Black Britain's Mandate!

Black Equity Organisation (BEO) is working in partnership with Operation Black Vote (OBV) to create Black Britain’s mandate for holding the next government to account. This will include policy asks for all political parties of what Black people across the UK believe will make their lives better. This mandate will be delivered within the first 100 days of the new parliament.

Black Britain’s Mandate aims to unify and amplify the diverse voices within Black communities, empowering them to assert their political influence and shape a vision of 21st-century Britain rooted in a vibrant multicultural democracy. This vision is about rectifying past injustices and creating a future where justice, equality, and inclusivity are upheld for all.

The Africa Centre shares the goal to empower our communities, advocate for equity, and contribute to positive societal change and is running a series of interactive workshops designed to foster community engagement and shape a robust and meaningful mandate that aims to hold the Government accountable and raise voting awareness.

The upcoming election is a pivotal moment for change, and your participation is vital. The Africa Centre and its partners want to ensure that the unique perspectives and challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals are heard and addressed in the policymaking process supporting the creation of informed policies that protect against discrimination, promote equality, and safeguard the rights of LGBTQ+ people. By being involved, you can influence decisions that shape a more inclusive and equitable society for all.

Attendees will embark on a journey of exploration, beginning with introductions and an overview of the Centre's mission, alongside partners, The Black Equity Org and Operation Black Vote.

The sessions will encourage open dialogue from dissecting the core pillars of the mandate to addressing broader concerns and the importance of voter engagement. Our objective is to provide a relevant platform for meaningful dialogue where we explore challenges and propose actionable solutions.

We look forward to you joining us for these essential discussions as we head towards the next election.

Refreshments will be provided.
