Dear Nottingham Citizens,

We’ve had a great January…
We’ve now have the date for our Accountability assembly (May 10th at the Royal Albert Hall) we will be seeking commitments on all our current strands of work as well as following up on asks we’ve put to decision makers in the past. At our end of year celebration many institutions wanted to see accountability on social care and mental health, we’ve listened and these will be a part of the evening. If you would like to be a part of the team organising the night do please get in touch with your organisers (Pete and Bilal).
Our teams have made progress…
…the hate crime team have now heard back from 957 people from its survey (here’s the link if you haven’t already participated). The team are now running focus groups and interview to hear from those with personal stories. If you want to be a part of any of the scheduled focus groups do please get in contact with Bilal. The next meeting is on the 13th of February at 6.30pm at God’s Vineyard Church.
…the homelessness team are partnering with 'Clean Sheet', who are a charity that works with prison leavers and local employers to secure employment upon release. Our homelessness team are having conversations across Nottingham, encouraging employers to come to an information evening in March, with a view to becoming a 'Clean Sheet Employer'. Join the team on the  12th of February at 6.30pm at St Nics Church to add your support- full training will be provided, do also get in contact with Pete.
...the modern slavery team are meeting civic institutions, major businesses, local authorities and public sector organisations on a mission to make Nottingham a slavery free city. They’re having conversations to get the message out and to get key stakeholders in the community to commit to a modern slavery pledge. Join the team on the 13th of March at 2pm, venue TBC, do also get in contact with Bilal.
We also gathered leaders from across our alliance and beyond to talk through the recommendations of the Missing Muslims report. A Citizens UK wide initiative examining the barriers on Muslim participation in public life, arguing that society fails if any cohort is missing. If you want to be a part of the action do get in contact with Pete. (Picture)
We saw civic societies finest as we were joined by students, lecturers trade unionists and  leaders from churches and synagogues– 24 of them in total, at our 2 day training at Pilgrim church in the meadows. It was a great mix of people from a range of backgrounds all learning about how change is made when ordinary people realise their power. Here, here! (Picture)
Until next month,
