About KIN

Over the last five years KIN has created a hub of solidarity, thought and restoration for Black activists and organisers. Since our inception, KIN has established itself as a CIC, held two convenings, one national and one international, and in addition three local events. We have also created a partnership with the George Padmore Institute and produced two reports in collaboration with Runnymede Trust. KIN has built a community of Black Activists and Organisers who see KIN as a home for community, connection and important conversations.

Our vision is a thriving and sustainable movement for Black liberation in the UK, with healing, joy and international solidarity as its practice.

 

KIN Aims

  • Connecting and building: Connect Black organisers, activists, campaigners and educators across the UK and the world. To establish the development of meaningful collaborative relationships of material and emotional support. To provide a network for Black activists to convene remotely and share expertise. Centring and supporting the most communities marginalised within the Black activist space such as Black migrants.
  • Knowledge sharing and archiving: Curate and hold space for a network of Black activists to share and build knowledge. Archiving the thinking and analysis around our struggle against anti-Blackness. Creative collaborations. Offer peer to peer training and skillshares in various areas such as conflict & strategic thinking.
  • Healing and restoration: Connect people who can emotionally and materially support each other on their healing and learning journeys. Cultivate and develop a nurturing and restful practice for Black organisers and hold spaces which speak to that.
