Join RCN London for our Black History Month event as we explore this year's theme: Anti-racism - a time for literacy and transformation.

Be prepared to be inspired as we bring you our Black History Month event on 15 October. With lived experience from our very own members in London to hearing from experts on the subjects of allyship and understanding the language of race and anti- racism. We'll also take a look at our Rising Stars for 2021. It is certainly not an event to be missed!
