Shared values and strong community links are at the heart of the UK-Caribbean relationship. It was great to co-chair the #UKCaribbeanForum , and hear plans for a #Windrush monument from @FloellaBenjamin
Today PM @BorisJohnson hosted a meeting with members of Britain’s Caribbean community. They discussed the new Windrush Working Group which will address challenges faced by the Windrush generation and their descendants. #WindrushDay
“The diversity of our society is its greatest strength and gives us so much to celebrate.” To mark #WindrushDay2020 , The Prince of Wales has sent a message of thanks to Britain’s Caribbean community for their contribution to life in the UK.
From addressing the opioid epidemic to expanding support for small businesses, members of the community are doing their part to help Puerto Rico and the Caribbean region. #IdeasIntoAction
A judge in Trinidad and Tobago ruled that laws which criminalize homosexuality are unconstitutional. The Caribbean nation current has zero laws protecting the LGBT+ community, and sex acts between 2 men carry prison sentences of up to 25 years.
Difficult to put into words the shame felt over our country’s deportations of Britain’s Afro-Caribbean community. Unspeakable wickedness. Even by our standards.
