Broxtowe Borough Council stands in support of those who are campaigning for equality.
Councillor Milan Radulovic MBE, Leader of the Council said: “There is no place for racism or hate in Broxtowe or anywhere else in the world. We have been incredibly shocked by what has happened in America and it is a reminder that no one should be complacent about racism. We stand in solidarity with people of all races and backgrounds to ensure that we can eradicate racism and inequality for good.
Councillor Steve Carr, Deputy Leader of the Council added: “Everyone in Broxtowe has the right to be treated fairly, with courtesy and respect and without discrimination and prejudice. We need change to be long lasting and we can only achieve this is we tackle inequality head on. Here in Broxtowe we will do just that. Leaders, both nationally and locally, should be bringing people together not driving them apart.”
Last year, the Council signed a Nottinghamshire Hate Crime Pledge as part of its commitment to tackling hate crime.
