EqualiTEA and Cake

The Equality and Rights Network is delighted to announce a series of drop-in events that will create a space to think and talk about what equality means to you and your community.

Our EqualiTea and Cake events will take place around the city and will be open to anyone who’d like to drop in for a cup of tea, a slice of cake, and a chat.

You can join in a discussion, ask questions, share your story, start a new conversation…or you can sit and listen too!

We’ll be there to help guide the conversation, answer any questions, and keep the tea and cake topped up.

Our first event is taking place on Saturday 23 June from 12.30pm-3pm at Volunteer Edinburgh, 222 Leith Walk, Edinburgh. This event is part of The Great Get Together which was inspired by the late Jo Cox MP and her belief that we “have far more in common than that which divides us”.

We would love to see you there for tea (or coffee), cake and a chat.
