BRIG (Birmingham Race Impact Group) is a new name for some old faces; a consortium of activists and academics who have worked for many years to promote racial justice in Birmingham.
They are coming together today because the COVID 19 pandemic is once again highlighting the extent of the UK's inequalities. At the same time, the Black Lives Matters movement is creating more ambitious approaches to fighting racism; beginning to transform the way we think of our national and local histories.
BRIG is focused on resourcing the next generation of activists by pulling together Birmingham's best practice on fighting racism. BRIG plans to fully document - for the first time - the successes of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic campaigners in Birmingham over the last sixty years.
