Black Lives Matter

Derby City Conservative Group is committed to promoting and providing equality and diversity both in its workforce and in the city. We believe in treating everyone fairly and with respect. We see the diversity of our city as a real strength. We want to build strong communities with a sense of togetherness and we want to tackle disadvantage. Racism has no place in Derby and we will continue to strive to combat it.

Our hearts go out to the family and friends of George Floyd. Racism will always be met with action, not silence it has no place at Derby City Council nor in our community and we do all we can to reinforce this. We work alongside our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Employee Support Network, our Race Equality Hub and other partners to make sure we learn and further develop a culture and environment that promotes race equality, inclusion and an individual Human right in our city.

We know feelings are running high and but we ask that if you chose to attend peaceful protests, that you follow social distancing to keep yourself and others safe.
