Centre for London Online London Conference in November-Make Sure Community Groups are There!

HEAR has been pleased to work with the Centre for London during the past couple of years and we have been encouraging the greater participation and voice of community groups and grass roots voluntary sector organisations in its work and in the influential London Conference

Please see the below invitation. Let's try and make sure that as many voices from the community in London are heard this year:

"This year Centre for London's flagship event, The London Conference, is going to be a little bit different.

Instead of a face-to-face event, we'll be holding the conference online, over the week of 2-6 November.

Expect a week of influential and lively keynotes, panels, debates and interviews alongside stimulating digital essays and interactive elements, including the inaugural London Conference Quiz Night. There will be more opportunities than ever to put your questions directly to our speakers, meet new people, hear international perspectives, and imagine new futures for London"

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network is a network of voluntary and community sector organisations across London working for equality, rights and social justice and against discrimination. We are currently funded by City Bridge Trust, Trust for London and the National Lottery.

Under our Bridging Divides funding we work to ensure that specialist equality and human rights groups, particularly the smaller and user led ones, and the Londoners they work with, can connect and work together across London and across equality specialisms. With our members we work to make equality issues central in local and regional decision making, and to raise awareness and work more closely with universities, think tanks, professional bodies and business. This funding also supports our core activities as a network: regular bulletins and information provision, knowledge sharing, signposting, website and networking.

The Trust for London project funds our Policy and Campaigns work, which supports organisations to campaign together on equality and rights issues of joint importance. Currently campaigns are focused around support for Deaf and disabled refugees and asylum seekers, hate crime, mental health equality, LGBTQI+ diversity and Digital Exclusion. We lead for Disabled customers on the National Asylum Stakeholder Forum Equality Sub-Group, who work alongside the Home Office to ensure the rights of asylum seekers are protected, and facilitate Charities Challenging Hate Crime, the London pan equality hate crime network.

In the NetEquality project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund Reaching Communities, through the Cornerstone Fund, dozens of smaller user-led and ‘grass roots’ equality groups and equality partners in London are working together. Over an initial two years, to mid 2021, we will design, test and pilot exciting new ways to use networking and online tools to strengthen our connections and quickly and easily share information and knowledge. We will be exploring ways to join up our voices for solidarity and influence and for more coordinated, effective campaigning to fight discrimination and improve equality in London. Through Stronger Together, funded by Awards for All, we provide activities and support for individual campaigners and those in the smaller, user-led and grass roots groups.
