We are SARA: Sussex Anti-Racist Action. We are a group of staff, students and community leaders including your sabbatical officers, trade unions, campaign groups and societies who are working together to tackle issues of institutional racism here at Sussex.
Over a series of forums we have worked with Sussex students, staff and community members to build a set of policies and changes that we believe Sussex University must adopt in order to create an Anti-Racist Sussex. The manifesto is split into 5 sections that are based on the key areas that we feel Sussex needs to address, these are: Pay & Awarding Gaps, Decolonising the Curriculum, Resisting the Hostile Environment, Eliminating Prevent, Community & Radical Care.
You can read our full manifesto here or watch our manifesto launch which summarise the main themes of the manifesto.
