This month we have been reading, learning and educating ourselves every day about issues surrounding racism, while donating to causes locally and globally.
We know there is more we can do, so we want to start locally and support BAME charities and initiatives in Wales by amplifying their voices, donating fundsand learning from the experiences of those they support.
Here’s a list of a few we have found, if you can, take a look at their websites, social media and the information they produce. We’ll continue to do what we can, but silence isn’t the answer, real action and change is.
