A small band of Radlett activists have formed Radlett Action for Racial Equality (RARE) – a group which aims to strengthen bonds between local people of all ethnicities and religions.
A RARE spokesman said: “When over 100 people turned out to ‘take a knee’ on Radlett High Street in June, it was clear that our village not only had the desire to play its part, but the numbers as well. Our mission is simple – to help educate our local community on both the historic and current struggles of ethnic minorities.
“We also aim to provide the impetus for the celebration and encouragement of diversity in the public, private and professional spheres of our community.
“At one anti-racism protest, an organiser said that the struggle was a marathon, not a sprint – and that’s why our activities will be regular, accessible to all and based on long-term goals of community relations.
“RARE will not only welcome any supporters from all backgrounds, but also invites anyone frustrated with systemic inequality to join our cause. To get involved, follow our Facebook page: Radlett Action for Racial Equality – RARE.”
