The Drill, Lincoln

JUST Lincolnshire will ensure that this discussion place is one of respect and space to listen and be heard.

We hope this will provide an opportunity for us to:

  • Change the divisive nature of some of the conversation. We seek to provide a safe space and facilitate respectful discussion.
  • Challenge, through education, systems, processes, and personal behaviours that discriminate against others and place barriers in the way of personal progress.
  • Champion the work of allies, both locally and nationally, that seek to empower and enable the voice of underserved communities to be heard.
  • Collaborate with all those who seek to bring real change in the challenging and removal of stigma, discrimination, and inequality.
  • Celebrate the diverse population of Lincolnshire and the contribution of all communities to the life of the county.
