The deadline for a consultation into Southwark’s anti-racism and diversity efforts is fast approaching. 

Residents have until Monday to give their feedback on how to increase diversity and inclusion in the borough.

Cllr Johnson Situ, cabinet member for growth and planning, is leading the programme of work called ‘Southwark Stands Together’.

So far, three ‘listening events’ have been held online, giving residents the opportunity to share their views on how deep rooted inequality can be tackled.

It is hoped this will also help mitigate the impact the pandemic has on people from black, asian and other minority backgrounds.

The local authority is also working on an audit of its street names and statues to identify those that may have links with slavery, and also identity opportunities to celebrate less well recognised figures in the borough’s history.

You can share your views via the online survey here until Monday, August 3.
