Rev Al Sharpton's only UK public talk-University of Westminster


OBV launches its General Election campaign this  Saturday 24th Jan at 12 noon at the University of Westminster, 4-12 Little Titchfield St, Central London, W1W 7BY.

To help with that launch we OBV has invited international civil Rights icon Rev Al Sharpton.

The aim of the event will be to inspire Black and minority ethnic communities to engage in the election as never before and demand that all the mainstream political parties have in their manifesto promise to put tackling  race inequality at the heart of a New Government.

Speaking before the event Director of OBV Simon Woolley stated:

“Very senior people from all the political parties have acknowledged the BME vote has never been so critical. In the 2015 Election there are 168 marginal seats where the Black vote is bigger than the majority held by the sitting MP. With this power we can make demands for greater  equality, greater opportunity”.

Rev Al C Sharpton stated that:

“ The empowerment of minorities  not only helps our communities to have a stronger voice and demand changes to tackle racism in employment, education and the criminal justice system, it also helps the whole of society.  Greater equality brings people together, makes a nation stronger and more dynamic. I’m happy to be in the UK for this exciting campaign”
