Pavithra Sarma

Pavi is one of the co-founders of an online intersectional anti-racism learning resource on Facebook called ‘Scottish Anti-Racism Education’ (SARE) with other women of colour (WOC). This initiative was launched on the 21st of March, 2021 to commemorate The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This space was set up due to their collective frustrations and experiences in anti-racism and equalities activism and due to a deep, burning desire to see a shift in mindsets around ‘race’, racism and equality in society. They use specific online community engagement strategies and exercises to engage with members via written resources, activity posts and discussion threads. Members have access to their learning units and resources to reflect and ‘unlearn’ their biases and racism on their journey towards being anti-racist.
