Black Activists Against Rising Cuts

We campaign to defend jobs and services, highlight the adverse impact of the huge reduction of public spending on deprived communities and provide a campaigning platform. Working together with trade unions, community groups, public service users and black campaigning organisations, we organise and help people to set up their own local groups, enabling black people to have a collective voice. Our work is wideranging and the funding we have received from WBC has enabled us to send speakers to events around the UK, organise campaign work and mobilise to support wider anti-racist and anti-austerity demonstrations. We initiated the Elbow Out Ebola People’s Campaign and held the Elbow Out Ebola conference which raised support for a global day of action. We have been conducting a survey of the experiences of young black workers and plan to present the results to the TUC.
