Anti-Racism Resources


Debate Mate is committed to championing anti-racism. We will support teachers and students in facilitating conversations about racism with resources, training and bespoke sessions throughout the year.

This page will be updated with more resources in the next weeks bespoke to different aged students so make sure to check in regularly!


#AdeAsks | Is the UK Institutionally Racist?

#AdeAsks is an interactive video series, hosted on Instagram and YouTube, in which we break down stories in the news and explore where there is a debate.

This week Aderonke has been looking back on the impact of George Floyd and asking how far has the UK come since the tragic killing of Stephen Lawrence and the 1999 Macpherson Report?
