Our issue cover is, perhaps, more bold than the contents: little more than thelatest attempt to (re)ignite the conversation around racism. I agree with Taskforce Chair Nasreen Fazal-Short(p. 22) that psychology, the Society and The Psychologist must ‘mainstream the agenda’ around inclusion, considered more broadly and with the input of areal range of voices.
What does‘standing against racism’mean to us as a magazine? Seeking outBAME psychologists for our pages. Providing a space for constructive, evidence- based, psychological conversation. Engaging withmarginalised groups along all kinds of intersecting dimensions.
This brings criticism from readers, but we make no apologies. As Nasreen told me, ‘people need to learn to tolerate, and not believe that just by existing they are oppressive, or being oppressed... real conversations are the only answer, to move us all forward, not just some of us.’ Can the Society be‘the heat and light that draws us together’ (p.36)?
