Black grassroots organising (KIN)

Runnymede has co-published a report with KIN, a grassroots network founded in 2017 by a collective of voluntary organisers based in the UK and US.

Groups involved in the conception of KIN include Black Lives Matter US, Take Back the City and Black Alliance for Just Immigration.

KIN organisers identified a lack of joined-up strategic thinking and conversation about black organising in both countries, as well as an absence of intergenerational work or deep reflection on shared history.

The first UK KIN convening took place in August 2018. Runnymede's Policy Officer, Kim McIntosh drafted a report reflecting the weekend's discussions, providing wider context, and suggesting next steps.

Although we are not a grassroots organisation, Runnymede is happy to learn from and partner with KIN and other grassroots groups challenging racism.
