The End Everyday Racism Project is leading a two-week campaign for students and staff to share their experiences of racism in Cambridge.

Following their first report, which shared findings from over 100 racist incidents (2018-2020), the EER project are calling for staff and students to share their experiences to help build a collective case for institutional change in Cambridge.

During the campaign, Dr Mónica Moreno Figueroa and Dr Ella McPherson will be leading a series of group sessions where those affected by racism can share a safe space to talk about their experiences in a way that recognises and affirms what has happened, and build community and solidarity in the face of discrimination.

These sessions will take place both online and offline, and will involve "co-listening" exercises as well as time to make an anonymous report submission to the EER project.
