Sam, Year 6

I really loved the assembly. The stories were so good and it taught me that I have to stand up against bullies, even if the bullying is not happening to me. 

Ella, Year 4

Dear ARISE, thank you for coming in to talk to us today. I learnt so much and loved hearing your stories. Please come back!

Mya, Year 3

Today I learnt that calling people names or laughing at them is wrong. You're allowed to be friends with whoever you want and your skin colour shouldn't come into it.

FAQs

  • Are you available for media appearances?
    Yes and no! We are always happy to talk to you about the important work we do. As we are a very busy organisation trying to make the world a better place, we will always decline shouty, "culture war" debates or interviews.
  • What do you do?
    We equip schools, colleges and universities with the knowledge, skills and confidence to be actively anti-racist. Active anti-racism is standing up against all forms of racial prejudice.
  • Do you travel?
    Yes! Although we are based in the UK, we are happy to travel abroad. Travel expenses and accommodation will be charged as an additional cost.

  • Do you talk about other aspects of discrimination? We are having a hard time with other issues in our school!
    All our sessions are predominantly about tackling racism and we do so with an intersectional approach. We do, however, know of lots of other organisations who are experts in other areas. You can find them here: https://www.diverseeducators.co.uk/our-dei-directory/
  • Are you teaching Critical Race Theory
    No. Our assemblies are age appropriate, child friendly sessions in which we tell children that racism is wrong, all humans are beautiful, kindness and respect is important and that it's important to get help from an adult if you or a friend is being bullied.
  • What is an FAQ section?
    An FAQ section can be used to quickly answer common questions about you or your business, such as “Where do you ship to?”, “What are your opening hours?” or “How can I book a service?” It’s a great way to help people navigate your site and can even boost your site’s SEO.
