Social Justice

Take action for equality and social justice

Black Lives Matter. Our society and sector are built on structures that are historically, systemically and currently racist. We all have a social obligation to do our part to change this.

Black Lives Matter has foregrounded the conversation, but it must not be allowed to fade into the shadows when the next issue starts trending on Twitter. To help continue this journey, we’ve brought together resources that the AMA, its members, and its staff have found useful in changing and informing our thinking and our actions. This is not comprehensive, but a work in progress.

Please share with us any things that you see so that we can keep growing this page, and keep the conversation, the learning and change going. Suggestions and feedback welcome at: info@a-m-a.co.uk.  If you want to know more about AMA’s own journey, you can read more here.
