Mike Nesbitt MLA and Colin McGrath MLA invite you to the launch of Sectarianism: The Key Facts, a framework report on tackling institutional sectarianism in Northern Ireland.
When: 12pm to 2pm, Monday 17 February 2020
Where: Room 115, Parliament Buildings, Stormont
Commissioned by the Equality Coalition, independent researcher Dr Robbie McVeigh has authored a piece of research on contemporary sectarianism in Northern Ireland. The report looks at ‘institutional sectarianism’ in NI – especially where there is evidence of sectarianism in decision-making – and puts forward recommendations for state action on sectarianism.
The launch of Sectarianism: The Key Facts will open with an introduction from Equality Coalition Co-Conveners Patricia McKeown (UNISON) and Daniel Holder (CAJ). Dr McVeigh will then share some of the main findings from his report. There will also be a panel discussion on sectarianism with Seán Brady (PPR), Elaine Crory (Belfast Feminist Network & WRDA), Kat Healy (Social Justice Trust), Gráinne Ní Ghilín (An Dream Dearg), and Rachel Powell (Women’s Sector Lobbyist). Time will be set aside at the event for questions from the audience.
All welcome. Lunch will be provided at the start of the event. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register, stating any access or dietary requirements.
The Equality Coalition is co-convened by UNISON and CAJ.
