Thanks to 6 big-hearted donors who have stood up alongside you and generously offered £30,000 of matched funding, every online gift you make through the Christmas Big Give will help twice as many people.
This is a special year for PoC, as it marks our 60th Anniversary. But the fact that we still need to exist is not something to celebrate. If the people that need our support can’t celebrate, then neither can we.
Many of the people we work with live on the margins of society and right now, they need your help. As well as coping with the repercussions of standing up for their human rights, so many of them are contacting us, telling us they’re struggling to survive the cost-of-living crisis.
The people we support and their struggle to stand up for their human rights is always our focus. However, from time to time we need to reflect on how we communicate our work to existing and new audiences, and, in an increasingly digital world, a crucially important part of this is our visual identity.
This International Migrants Day we recognise and celebrate the contributions of refugees and migrants to the UK society. Alazar, an engineer and activist from Eritrea, was forced to leave his home country and flee to the UK simply for doing the right thing: standing up to injustice.
