The theme of this year’s conference is “Eyes Wide Open: Moving Forwards and Staying Unified”.

Moving Forwards and Staying Unified reflects the difficulties we have faced such as an increase in racism following Brexit, increases in Islamophobia, attacks on the Windrush generation and uncertainty about what the future holds. In the face of such struggles, self-organisation and reflecting on the lessons we have learned is of paramount importance.
