ROTA AGM 2020/21 and "Excluding Racism from our Education System" Conference

Race on the Agenda hereby gives notice to its members that our Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the financial year 2020/21 is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 5th July 2022 at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.

Registration for the conference will be will be from 4.45pm.  The event will be followed by ROTA's Annual General Meeting for the financial year 2020/21 and will begin at 7pm prompt. 


Before the AGM, there will be a special conference: "Excluding Racism from our Education System"  

Registration for the Conference will be from 4.45pm and the conference will begin at 5pm  prompt. Refreshments will be provided.

The challenges faced by young people from racialised minority communities in the UK education system are well documented.  From the fight against disproportionate exclusions (both formal and informal) to the fight for a more inclusive curriculum, to examining the greater dropout rates of minority ethnic university students, ROTA is one of a number of organisations working to address these disparities. We believe that by working with communities, parents, young people, teachers and the organisations campaigning for change, we can finally create an education system that is fit for purpose.  

Join us for a panel debate with our allies.
