Coronavirus: Weekly update from Georgia Gould

PUBLIC INFORMATION FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

01 October, 2020 — By Cllr Georgia Gould

PUBLIC INFORMATION FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

Today (1 October) marks the start of Black History Month, which celebrates the incredible achievements of Black communities across the UK.

It’s an opportunity to acknowledge the remarkable contributions made by our Black communities to Camden’s history and progress. This year we’re celebrating with Black History Season, a series of mainly virtual events that will run until December.

I encourage you all to join in – see the article below for more details.

This comes at a pivotal moment, with the spotlight of the Black Lives Matter movement and evidence that COVID-19 disproportionately affects our Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. As one of the country’s most diverse areas, with a history of fighting for equality and progress, Camden works hard to address racism and inequality.

The loss and trauma of recent months motivates us all to listen, learn and take comprehensive action.

This is an opportunity for us to re-commit wholeheartedly to fighting inequality, prejudice and discrimination wherever we see it, and work together to make meaningful change.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
