ROTA AGM 2017/18 and "Brexit for BME Britain?" Conference

Race on the Agenda hereby gives notice to its members that our Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the financial year 2017/18 is scheduled to take place on Thursday 22nd November 2018 at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.

Registration will be from 6pm and the formal AGM will begin at 6.30pm prompt. Refreshments will be provided.

A special conference “Brexit for BME Britain?”, will follow the Annual General Meeting.


Rarely a day, or a news cycle, goes by without Brexit dominating the headlines. Yet there has been little mention of Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities – the hopes, fears and expectations of 8 million Britons still a glaring omission from the debate.

As a ‘No Deal’ Brexit becomes ever-more likely, join us for the launch of our briefing: Brexit for BME Britain, 22nd November, which follows our AGM. We will present the findings followed by a Q&A with:

  • Femi Oluwole, Chief Spokesperson, Our Future, Our Choice, regular Brexit commentator on Sky News, BBC, The Independent, The Times and Evening Standard: the leading anti-Brexit campaign that centres the voices of young people
  • Kunle Olulode, Director, Voice4Change England, a national advocate for the Black and Minority Ethnic voluntary and community sector (BMS VCS) and pro-Brexit commentator

Guest speakers: Nahir de la Silva, Policy and Communications Officer, Latin American Women’s Rights Service (LAWRS). And more speakers TBC.  And more speakers TBC.
