BCM & ODF present our quarterly Black Table Talks (BTT) for collaboration and networking of black groups within Derby via virtual meeting at 7pm Monday 19th April 2021.

An evening of sharing community news, introducing new groups and hearing from a guest speaker.

This virtual event will open with updates from co-hosts BCM (Black Community Matters) & ODF (Open Doors Forum) on current campaigns, progress on the Black Lives Matter Derby Manifesto, upcoming projects & volunteering opportunities for you to get involved and help shape Derby for the better.

This will be followed by networking time – various local Black community groups/organisations will briefly share their updates and activities, hence enabling groups to connect/work together, share ideas & resources and to rise up collectively.

Supporters / allies of all ethnicities welcome – Together we are Unstoppable!

Register free here to attend – please let us know in advance if you require any support to access and participate; the event will have live transcription subtitles available.
