Friday 1 July at 9:30am outside Birmingham City Council House in Victoria Square
As a response to a rise in racist attacks you are invited to the launch of ‘Love Your Neighbour, Do Something Kind Today’ outside the Council House tomorrow Friday 1 July at 9.30am. This initiative is being supported by members of the council, business, faith communities, the arts, humanists and many others.
We want to encourage people to put up a banner outside temples, churches, businesses, schools etc.
They will be available to buy but we are also looking for donations to help cover the cost so that we can have as many as possible across the city.
An on-line campaign will be launched that will also have downloadable posters, stickers and suggestions of acts of kindness that people can easily join in with.
I do hope you’ll be able to join us tomorrow morning for the launch, and then be able to spread the word so that Birmingham can do what it does best – act kindly to neighbours and strangers.
Please feel free to forward this to all those you think might be interested and to invite them to come to the launch.
Canon Dr Andrew Smith, Director of Interfaith Relations for the Bishop of Birmingham
