Black Lives Matter
We at Re:Store strive to be an anti-racist organisation, and as a result took some pledges in 2020. Our progress on those is below:
- Mentoring for young Black or Ethnic Minority individuals who are interested setting up a small business and need some advice. If this is you or someone you know, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently mentoring a Manchester-based young person looking to set up a mobile zero waste store. We have availability to take on more people so please do get in touch if you need some advice.
- Inclusive Recruitment going forwards we will consult with inclusive recruitment experts to ensure our recruitment process, from job description through to interview, is fully inclusive
We have gone through two recruitment rounds using the framework an inclusive recruitment consultant created for us
- Anti-Racist Book Club sharing of important books that will help educate on systematic racism, and sharing of Black and Ethnic Minority stories and perspectives e.g. 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race' to our Book Club box in the shop which is available to anyone who leaves a similar book for another customer
Our BLM Book Swap is still going strong! Do bring in a book to swap if you'd like to read something new!
- Event Space we would like to offer our shop space for use in the evenings, for events that promote anti-racism, or for Black and Ethnic Minority local community groups who are in need of space to meet.
Please do get in touch if you'd like to use the space for these purposes
