Who are Carlisle Equality Group?
The Carlisle Equality Group welcomes anyone along who is interested in working towards greater equality and social justice in the area. We have a broad range of members and concerns reflecting the wide range of economic, material, social, educational and health inequalities in this area. The group has been convened by Professor Kaz Stuart from the University of Cumbria and Adrienne Gill from the Carlisle One World Centre and is a collaborative and cooperative endeavour with the members equally deciding on events and activities. The group is affiliated to the Equality Trust and works towards equitable social change in the Carlisle area. More can be found about the Equality Trust here:
What is the Inequality Awareness Event?
On the 18th of January the Carlisle Equality Group are running an inequality awareness event. We will have an interactive stand in the market place in Carlisle displaying key statistics and infographics about inequality and providing engaging activities about inequality for families to take part in. The stand will be open from 10am till 12pm in showing support for the Fight Inequality Alliance international event that day. More can be found about the FIA here:
