Liberate’s vision is of an inclusive society where all citizens of the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey (“the Channel Islands”) are accepted equally by government, organisations, society and themselves regardless of their race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, parental status, caring responsibilities, age, disability, trade union membership, offending background or any other personal characteristic.
Liberate’s mission is to support those who identify as part of a minority or visible minority group (“Minorities”) living in the Channel Islands by:
- Providing safe and inclusive spaces for people to meet across the Channel Islands;
- Educating and informing residents, organisations and governments of the Channel Islands on a range of minority issues;
- Campaigning to reform policies and laws to ensure that Minorities can enjoy the same freedoms and rights as everyone else across the Channel Islands;
- Questioning social attitudes and behaviours which discriminate against Minorities in the Channel Islands;
- Working with government and other providers to ensure equal access to and equal quality of services, such as healthcare, housing and education, for Minorities across the Channel Islands;
- Offering advice and help to residents and law enforcement agencies of the Channel Islands in tackling racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and other hate crimes.
