In support of Black Lives Matter, Stockport Council issued the following statement, signed by all Group Leaders:
“Stockport Council stands together with people here and across the world who face racism and prejudice.
We believe discrimination and oppression has no place in our society and we stand united in solidarity with those who seek to tackle inequalities.
Tolerance, kindness and respect are at the heart of our communities in Stockport and these values underpin our inclusive approach to the way we live. Racism and discrimination have no place in our society and we must, as a community, continue to make a stand.
Tackling inequalities has always been, and will continue to be, our priority.”
