Black Lives Matter
Following discussion of the Black Lives Matter movement at the town council meeting on Monday, Wirksworth Town Council would like to affirm its opposition to Racism and Inequality and commits to:
• Openly talking about racism within our community, as racism thrives in the company of silence.
• Work with other Local Authorities and community groups to tackle racism and the causes of racism.
• Work with the Police and local Law Enforcement to ensure a no tolerance policy is taken on all hate crime - including hate speech.
• To refer this for further discussion by the council on how this can be achieved.
