S/E Hampshire BME – Local voice
Local Consultation Seminar – 12th January 2008
– Race Equality Councils, organisations like PRENO etc. The regional voice now needs to go to the local levels and Hampshire, IOW and Southampton groups will all be at the UNI Consultation Event to be held on Saturday 12th January at the Buckland Community Centre from 9.30am to 12.30pm followed by a multicultural lunch.
TJ introduced himself and said that he had come into post in June and would be bringing the faith agenda to PRENO’s Race Equality work. It is all going well and TJ is engaged in the One World Week. This runs from 21st to 28th October and two main events taking place which TJ has helped to organise and co-ordinate are, “All Together Now”, an afternoon of music, stalls and entertainment here at Buckland Community Centre and “One World Walking Together”, an interfaith walk around Somers Town in Portsmouth to visit different places of worship and to hear about how each faith teaches about caring for our world. The media has been in touch re these race and faith events and there has been a lot of interest. There will be an opportunity to measure your carbon footprint at “All Together Now”. One correction to note is that the Jami Mosque is at Bradford Junction. The “One World Walking Together” walk will take place on the pavements and not in the road. TJ said that people doing the walk will learn just how similar all the faiths actually are.
Beverley Meeson introduced herself and said that she co-ordinates efforts in Hampshire and the IOW to improve mental health for BME people as Focussed Implementation Site Co-ordinator - Delivering Race Equality in Mental Health Care. This also ties-in with TBD’s mental health project (mentioned earlier). Some groups are over-represented i.e. black and Polish males.
