Building on the success of the last couple of years' trade union conferences, the event will bring together trade unionists from across different industries and sectors to discuss and organise how we can raise anti racism in our unions and workplaces.

From the threat of a far right street movement breaking through, to the anti racist movement's defeat of fascist 'Tommy Robinson' in Britain, to the rise in racist populism and intensification of a 'hostile environment' we are seeing in the form of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage - there are both victories for the anti racist movement to discuss, as well as major challenges now facing the anti racist movement.

The result of the general election and the reality of a Johnson led Tory government has made clear that anti racism is going to continue to be an important issue that should be at the heart of our unions.

Full timetable and speakers will follow shortly.
