Kids of Colour

A platform for young people of colour to explore race, identity and culture and challenge the everyday, institutionalised racism that shapes their lives

Why

We want to inform society on the diverse experiences belonging to young people of colour, humanizing them and challenging the narrative that makes them one-dimensional. We want to build a picture of how they are affected by everyday, micro-aggressive and institutional racism.

Who

Kids of Colour is led by Roxy Legane, who has worked in the youth and charity sector since 2013. She set up Kids of Colour in 2018, tired of the way society represents young people of colour homogenously and its failure to recognise their experiences of racism.

Racism in Education: Pressure Group

It has become clear to Kids of Colour that an independent pressure group must form in Greater Manchester. This is a platform for young people, parents or guardians to report incidents of overt, micro-aggressive or structural racism affecting young people in educational institutions. We want to build a picture in order to challenge, and where possible, offer support through our networks. You can remain anonymous.
