Celebrate Diversity!

Loving Dalston!

Hackney Unites has always celebrated our diversity. No city in the world, is more diverse than London, no borough more diverse than Hackney, and frankly, no ward more diverse than Dalston.So at a time when multi-culturalism is under attack: from extremists who want to see us fighting rather than supporting each other, from politicians chasing an elusive ‘centre ground’ of politics, and from a national press that cannot see beyond stereotypes, we thought we would have a week-long party. From 13 – 20 July, Hackney Unites, working with many friends and supporters, are staging a ‘Dalston People’s Festival’. After months of planning, and on a tiny budget, hundreds of local people have come together to create a celebration of us and all of our wonderful difference. There will be lots of fun, of course, but also some serious discussions about who we are and how we can work together for a brighter future. And of course this celebration is an invitation to the whole of Hackney - and further - so come on down! To receive our regular e-newsletter sign up here: http://eepurl.com/bPJDH
