“The long held dream of living in a world where the colour of one’s skin is no more important than the colour of one’s eyes or where one lives, is fundamental to a person’s physical, financial, spiritual and mental health, all of which are linked.
The recent events remind us that there is an urgent need to put words into action and we call for anti-racism strategies to be implemented in order to improve the experience of those in our communities impacted by mental ill health.
We at African Caribbean Community Initiative (ACCI) recognise that victimisation, profiling, intimidation, discrimination of any kind is repugnant, morally redundant and we stand firmly against it.
ACCI will continue to speak up for the lost voices who cannot speak for themselves, as we all strive to make a difference to the lives of the people in our community of whom we support in the battle to eradicate discrimination. #We stand together as one. Black lives matter.”
