Literature Alliance Scotland (LAS) is proud to collaborate with the Scottish BAME Writers’ Network and we support their Call to Action to the Scottish Literary sector.
We believe that Black Lives Matter, and we know that words alone are not enough.
That’s why we’re committing to working with our members on developing an action plan that will make real changes in actively addressing racial inequalities and structural privilege in Scotland’s Literature, Languages and Publishing sector.
As part of this, we’re reviewing our own structures and reflecting on how we can ensure that Black voices and people of colour are included in decision-making positions at LAS.
We can all do better and we must.
