To celebrate the launch of the Winter issue — Power — STIR Magazine are collaborating with Impact Hub Brixton to launch the magazine during their Open Project Night on 19 February 2018. Get a free ticket here!

Marginalised workers and particularly those within Black, Asian and Latino communities, are most likely to fall into precarious work and the first to be left behind by the rise of automation and the gig-economy. We’ll be asking: “Can current projects that aim to work as alternatives to neoliberalism also work for racial justice? And how can we mitigate the racialised impact of the precarious work through the way we organise?”

We’ll discuss if and why the co-operative movement is white-dominated, and how we can build alternative work spaces that embody racial justice principles. We’ll also think about how to use union structures and other organising methods to build power among precarious workers of colour, and what movement building strategies are needed to dismantle racism, classism, sexism and homophobia.

Join Economic Justice Organiser and STIR magazine author Gurpreet Bola and our panel — Runnymede Trust’s Director Omar Khan, Edge Fund Organiser Natasha Nkonde, Marissa Begonia from The Voice of Domestic Workers, and Claudia Turbet-Delof from United Voices of the World Union to explore how we can build alternatives to neoliberalism that work for everyone.

You can get a copy of the STIR Magazine winter issue before the event, with 25% off here.
