EVENT 3

Alison Lowe - Deputy Mayor of West Yorkshire

We are delighted to be joined by Alison who made history on her election in 1990, being the first ever black woman councillor in Leeds. She also led a review into statues in the city following Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020.

Working alongside Tracey Brabin she will be responsible for a multitude of issues facing our community. Come along to learn more about the role and the long journey it has taken for her to become one of the most influential people in the West Yorkshire area.

Johnny Flowers - Business Owner of Ashbrow Garage in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

Johnny will be revisiting how The Jamaica National events were started and his involvement with the organisation over the years. He will also be discussing the 1992 riots and how he helped resolve community tensions with the West Yorkshire Police.

Sharing Dreams and Struggles Within our Black African Caribbean Community

We are looking forward to meeting our black African Caribbean community and others from anywhere within the UK and abroad. Being able to converse and share things with others who share the same heritage and ideals is indeed a good way of coming together in unity, solidarity and strength.

We are encouraging our community to strive towards the changes that need to happen along with offering support in any way possible. Let's engage in some quality time and enjoy sharing anything we feel to discuss together, during our regular online sessions.

Systemic and institutional racism along with oppression is and has always been prevalent in the UK regarding our black/brown African Caribbean community residents, this must and has to change now.

We will be holding regular online meetings and events, a welcoming digital centre that all our black community residents can attend. Everyone will be free to speak on any topics, issues and other pressing concerns they wish to express. Times were hard before the recent global pandemic and they will only be even more trying in the coming months ahead
