Celebrating Black History Month (BHM)
The Equal Opportunities Department has been promoting Black History Month for a number of years, celebrating and remembering the vital roles played by prominent members of the BAME community.
We ask Branches and Regions to consider organising a Black History initiative in order that our members can be better informed around the significant contribution of black people in history.
We are in possession of a number of interesting black history pull-ups, which feature various characters both from the past and present. These pull-ups, which are part of a wider exhibition, have been used and celebrated by organisations such as the Labour Party and other trade unions.
Use of the pull-ups is completely free but carriage costs would be met by anyone agreeing to use them. We also ask that any Branch or Region who uses the pull-ups considers making a donation to the African-Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT).
We are confident that all CWU members irrespective of their colour, creed etc. will find a black history initiative of great interest.
Any enquiries regarding this LTB should be referred to the Equal Opportunities Department. Yours sincerely
National Equality Officer
