During this Action Week we have been trying to raise awareness about biases: what they are, how they work and how they’re related with the spreading of #racist ideologies and expressions, challenging people to discover their own biases but also providing some tips on how to overcome them.
For the occasion we have the privilege to discuss with two uK based experts, Julie Ward and Shahab Saqib.
Julie is a British Labour politician and former MEP who was elected to the European Parliament in 2014. Currently an education consultant in the north east of England, Julie remains an active campaigner for migrants rights, currently campaigning against the UK government’s detention and asylum policies.
