Stand Up To Racism Conference

In ten days time, our national conference brings together anti-racists from across Europe to discuss combating the rise of racism, Islamophobia & anti-Semitism. This event is a crucial opportunity to discuss how we turn this growing movement into an agent for change in turning back this vicious tide of hate and injustice.
