London City Hall handed out the London Diversity, Race Relations, and Inclusivity Awards on Tuesday evening. Three awards were given out to honour each groups respective contribution in promoting awareness of diversity, anti-racism, and human rights in London.
The winner of the youth award went to King’s University College’s ‘London Interfaith Peace Camp.’ The small community services award was awarded to Northeast London Community Conversations Group, and the large community services honour was awarded to Pride London.
The awards were presented by Mayor Matt Brown and it’s no doubt that all three groups have made tremendous contributions to the community. Nominees were selected throughout the year and the winners were selected on the day of the closest council meeting to Human Rights Day, which falls on December 10th.
“It’s a tremendous honour and it means a lot to Pride London and our community as a whole. We’ve come a long way as a city that accepts everyone and respects everyone equally.” explains Pride London president Andrew Rosser.
The strides taken by these groups to promote awareness of diversity, anti-racism, inclusivity, and human rights has not gone unnoticed, and on Tuesday evening they were given proper congratulations.
