Anti-Racism Ally Network

Our mission is: ‘To create a supportive community to tackle systemic racism at the University of Oxford’ by:

  • Building a network of students and staff supporting the actions of the BME Staff Network. 
  • Being proactively anti-racism allies/co-conspirators. 
  • Drawing particular attention to and challenging acute anti-Black racism. 

Four steps to becoming an Ally:

  • Use your privilege to amplify supressed voices.
  • Support the demands of the BMESN and other anti-racism groups.
  • Listen to what your BAME friends and colleagues are saying.
  • Join us on the Anti-Racism Ally Network. The Anti-Racism Ally Network was formed by a group of voluntary members from the BME Staff Network in the summer of 2020. It aims to create a supportive community to tackle systemic racism at the University of Oxford. You will receive the network newsletter which will contain suggestions of readings/videos/podcasts, tips on how to be an ally, be invited to relevant events  and contribute to create a supportive community of allies.
