IFT believes that Black Lives Matter and that each of us has a role to play in opposing racism, injustice and oppression. In response to the tragic events of the past few weeks and the powerful anti-racism protests across the UK and around the world, we want to reaffirm our commitment to combating racism. We stand in solidarity with all those who are protesting and we hear the demands for change. But making a statement isn’t enough. To address structural racism and the inequalities underpinning society, we have a responsibility to act.
At IFT we will work in dialogue together with students, tutors, staff, and families, to inform how we can best act to create meaningful sustainable change, not only for now, but into the future forever, with love, courage, and belief that we can.
We work with our partner academic institution Bedfordshire who have affirmed their commitment:
