Can we end racism in Croydon in a generation?

The headline question, “Can we end racism in Croydon in a generation?” is the theme of a week’s worth of activities planned for a “pop-up shop” (ie. using an empty retail outlet for no rent for a short while) in the centre of town next week by the Runnymede Trust.

From November 3 to 7 at No3 Katharine Street, the equality pop-up shop will be a discussion hub on matters of equality.

The organisers say:

Pop in any time  for a chat over a free cup of tea and slice of cake, or come to one of our planned events:

  • Launch of our documentary Is Croydon Racist? featuring Linford Christie, followed by a Q&A with Gavin Barwell MP and others (Fri Nov 4, 6.30-8.30pm)
  • Have your say on the recent riots at our informal drop-in discussion (Sat Nov 5, 2pm)
  • Got a view on stop and search? Come to the launch of a new film on the issue, followed by a debate (Sunday Nov 6, 2pm)
  • What can you do to end racism in a generation? Come to our next steps and closing event (Monday  Nov 7, 5.30pm)

A full schedule with opening times is available by clicking here.
