On the 10th anniversary of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry, which resulted in the Sir MacPherson report / recommendations, and the 20th anniversary of the establishment of BRAMU, we are threatened with closure due to the lack of financial commitment from Birmingham local authority.
BRAMU was formed in 1989 after Home Office report found that victims were reluctant to report incidents of race hate crimes to statutory organisations. We are a community based independent organisation. BRAMU has since then provided support and advice to, and campaigns on behalf of, those who have been subjected to racist discrimination, harassment or violent attacks. It has been involved in over 3,500 cases and currently has over 120 ongoing cases.
BRAMU will be holding another rally outside the Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB on Tuesday 9th June at 12.00 noon to demand that Birmingham City Council reverse their decision to withdraw the funding to BRAMU, the only community based organization providing essential services to victims of hate crimes, particular race hate crimes. Guest speakers to be confirmed near the time:
We the undersigned call upon Birmingham City Council to reverse their decision to withdraw the funding to BRAMU the only community based organization provides essential services to victims of hate crimes, particular race hate crimes.
