News Release from Sector3
As well as being a public health crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on inequality. Marginalised communities, already on the edge of society, found themselves bearing the brunt of the fallout.
In response, Stockport’s Voluntary, Community & Faith based, Social Enterprise and Charity sector galvanised to provide crucial support to our communities, including those forgotten and pushed to the wayside.
Not wanting to lose this momentum, Stockport Equity Network and Sector3 have launched Stockport’s first ever Equality Month.
Stockport Equality Month will see a host of vibrant multicultural events from art workshops and walk & talks to culinary celebrations. Each event a conversation starter for those who want to learn more about different communities and identify ways they can be an ally to those experiencing inequality.
Residents, businesses and organisations are invited to discover how they can support their family, friends, neighbours and employees towards an inclusive and equitable society.
