Naomi and Natalie Evans (Everyday Racism)
Naomi and Natalie Evans are writers, educators and speakers based in the UK. They run an educational Instagram account called Everyday Racism which is the largest anti-racism platform in the UK.
Everyday Racism is an organisation that seeks to educate and provide resources on being actively anti-racist. It started as an online platform after a video of Natalie confronting two men racially abusing a ticket inspector went viral on Twitter, and when Natalie and Naomi decided to set up the platform with the intention of sharing stories from Black people and People of colour to highlight their everyday experiences of racism in the UK. This quickly evolved into creating educational posts about language and anti-racist terminology, and as the platform grew and posts were shared globally, they decided to start designing their own educational resources based around how to be actively anti-racist.
The organisation now runs a series of workshops, a book club focusing on work by Black and POC authors, training courses and provides resources including templates for MP and discrimination complaint letters.
Naomi and Natalie have just released their first non-fiction book The Mixed-Race Experience, which was published by Penguin.
