Charity Workers Share Shocking Incidents Of Racism: ‘It Shows Hypocrisy’ By Aasma Day

Why is the charity sector not leading on this instead of being defensive and hiding behind the shield of good intentions?”

When Fatima Iftikhar initially called attention last month to “horribly racist” training materials used by the national charity organisation Citizens Advice, she didn’t intend to spark a movement.

But after her criticism of the group went viral on social media, it became clear that a larger conversation around racism in the charity world was long overdue. “I know from personal experience and that of my friends and colleagues that people of colour face constant racism working in the charity sector,” said the 25-year-old organiser with #POCIMPACT, a community run by and for people of colour in the social impact sector.
