BaRE is a shortened name derived from our motto Battle for Racial Equality.
We are a group of volunteers of various backgrounds: charity volunteers, students, professionals, artists, British, asylum seekers, refugees, EU nationals… willing to engage in the cultural battle for racial equality.
We want to take the discussion about prejudice and racism further. The experience of discrimination by ethnic minority communities does not only rely on overt racism. It comes from misinformation, prejudice and innocent yet biased perceptions too, which all form narratives. Our objective is to change these damaging narratives.
Here you can criticise biased media stories and explain where the bias is. You can also report alternative local stories, showing different realities, shedding a different light and proposing a different angle… a different narrative.
We are inclusive. All formats accepted: short articles, longer essays, audio recordings, videos, interviews. All English-levels and written-styles accepted. Our language is different because our narratives are.
You can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or via @thebareuk

I am currently participating in a one-year volunteering project at the Moldovan Institute of Human Rights in the Republic of Moldova. I am interested in topics related to human rights, language politics, identity and LGBTQ+ rights.
I am a volunteer coordinator and housing advice manager at Positive Action in Housing. I have a specific interest in housing and social policies. I hope to help influence the public debate on inequality by suggesting new angles and encouraging new voices to speak up.
