Tuesday, 25th May marks the anniversary of George Floyd’s death, which ignited Black Lives Matter protests around the world for racial equality. It is a day to reflect on race equality.
We are proud to represent paramedics from all backgrounds and proud to serve our diverse communities. We welcome diversity and celebrate difference in all its forms and the enrichment it brings to all our lives.
We are committed to continue working towards an inclusive organisation and appreciate that there is still much work to do. We want to make it clear that we stand united against racism and all forms of discrimination and prejudice.
We show our support and solidarity with Black, Asian and minority communities throughout the UK and around the world in the relentless pursuit of equality and the fight against racism and discrimination.
We would like to use this day as a call to action for us all, to consider how we act and our personal responsibility, in creating a fairer and inclusive society for all. Today is a time to reflect, to renew our commitments against racism and discrimination and to redouble our efforts towards the achievement of this goal.
