The Anti-Tribalism Movement (ATM) will hold Unite Summit, inviting 50 key community leaders/organisations, academic, government officials, and practitioners who have been at the forefront of the community response to Covid-19 and beyond.
The Unite Summit aims to hold a wider dialogue on our shared challenges and solutions which affect the Somali community in the UK. This Summit will give us the opportunity to discuss and present policy recommendations. In 2020 and 2021, we produced five policy briefs which reflected on issues which Somalis in the UK faced and further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. They are as follows:
- COVID-19 – Impact on the Somali Community
- COVID-19: Impact on Remittances from the UK to Somalia
- Improving Mental Health Support for the UK Somali Community
- COVID-19 and Women: The UK’s Horn of Africa Communities
- COVID-19, Unemployment and The Somali Community
This one-day Summit will focus on these thematic areas, guided by presentations and workshops. This will enable us to dissect some of the thematic and structural issues associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. This Summit is an opportunity to add value, ideas and instigate practical solutions that can be part of the recovery plan from the pandemic.
If you would like to attend the summit, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org as this event is invite only
In this above event, we aim to instigate a wider dialogue, share our thematic findings, recommendations, and grassroots experience.
At ATM we have been working on a number of policy areas and we have recently completed Policy Briefing on the Impact of COVID19 on Unemployment in the Somali community. In this policy area, we have taken wider consultation from diverse groups, including young people, women, and men affected by COVID19 on their employment prospects and livelihoods.
In the above event, we aim to instigate a wider dialogue, share our thematic findings, recommendations, and grassroots experience with key stakeholders locally and nationally. This event will also give key stakeholders the opportunity to ask questions of key entities/panels from the Department for Work and Pensions and community groups involved with tackling unemployment on a local level.
Please join us and make a note of the date on 26th May 2021 at 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM for your calendars. Further updates will follow shortly in the coming weeks
