I would like to pay tribute to the BARAC executive, whose work has been exemplary in seeking to demonstrate the links between austerity, the growth of racism, and the disproportionate impact on Black and Asian and ethnic minority communities.
We have fought and won some amazing battles together and I am proud of our many achievements.
It is then, with great sadness, I announce that I have stood down as Co Chair.
I am taking, a much needed break, both on line in relation to social media and in real life.
After 35 years on the front line of our struggle for equality I feel, it's now time to move on.
I am confident in BARAC's future with Zita remaining as Chair, and with the support of the national executive, and ask that you continue to support, and work with BARAC, and I look forward to watching our continued success.
In relation to the public advocacy, I am no longer in a position to do case work support, or representation on behalf of individuals.
I hope now to move on to undertake a Phd.
For those seeking to contact me, the only means to do so, going forward is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
