Who Are We? image
Ruth South the founder and Esther Douglas Co-founder of CARE – Communities Against Racism Enterprise is all about Communities, Allyship, Restoration and Equality/Empathy. CARE was set up to help those suffering from racial trauma through the REPAIRATION of their minds, regardless of their ethnic background or skin colour. We believe that both the victim and perpetrator are affected by racism as no one gets a pass and our mind need to be repaired.

With the narrative that is being disseminated in regards to education, media and the general information spoken about racism.

There appears to be lots of talk and postulation but very little action, therefore we aim to engage the issue about race from the grassroots level upwards, through any medium.



Mission Statement
Communities Against Racism Enterprise (CARE) is a God given project. For there, is no way, this insidious and hateful entity called racism is in the will of God. If it were, there would be no need for biblical texts such as: 1 John 4:16, 1 John 3:16, Acts 17:26, 1 John 3:15 and Romans 12:2.

We at CARE believe that racism, in all its forms, is extremely damaging and traumatic to the human race. We have witnessed and experienced the physical, social, spiritual, psychological, moral and economic harm it does to all people throughout societies, past and present and on a global scale. This unnecessary evil has to change.

The issue of racism is a constant concern for the founder of CARE who is a woman of faith. The continuum of political and social unrest around systemic racism and police brutality has given momentum to the cause.

Our vision is to facilitate grass roots growth and liberation, so impactful, that it influences changes in all policy and practice.
Our mission is to lobby not only for economic reparations but more importantly psychological reparations that will enable CARE (and our allies) to address the insidious harm that racism bestows on the human psyche.
We seek to find ways to unite as ONE RACE to eradicate a common enemy – racism.
We exist to expound the belief that fundamentally, God made only ONE race – the human race, and as such, given the right conditions we can unite under one banner, the banner of love, forgiveness and respect, that declares unapologetically and without shame, that we are indeed:
                          One Blood – One Race – One People

Clavis 7even

Host

CLAVIS 7EVEN: Born in DR Congo and raised in Wolverhampton, CLAVIS 7EVEN is a rapper, singer-songwriter and producer who explores Hip-Hop, R&B and Afrobeats combining inventive raps with suede and mellow vocals. Influenced by Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Labrinth, Stormzy and Wretch 32, Clavis’ music depicts emotional complexities and displays vulnerability through authentic narratives. The honesty found in his lyrics is introspective, thought-provoking and resonates with oneself’s innermost side. 
 Being raised in church and by two pastoral parents, contributed to the artist he is today. Singing in the choir sparked his interest in music, leading him to play the drums and the bass guitar. Clavis grew up developing a love for art and creativity; his enthusiasm for acting and music theatre provoked him to study literature and poetry that he would use later to master the craft of songwriting. Throughout his early years, Clavis experienced a harsh reality and was surrounded by gang violence. His passion for music is what guided him to create music that would inspire his community. 
 After releasing his afro-influenced EP Care Package, Clavis established himself within the scene when his mixtape 7's Deadly Sins showcased his clever wordplay and creative storytelling. He gained recognition among the main British broadcasting channels; BBC Radio London, hosted on Raffaella Coleman’s show and Theo Johnson’s BBC Music Introducing platform, which announced him as Artist of the Month.

Ian Palmer

Singer

I sing out of gratitude and for service. I’m grateful to God that He has seen fit to allow me to sing for Him, despite my unworthiness, and because of His love. So I know He wants me to serve His children by offering songs to give hope, songs of faith, songs of His love. I try to give my best, for the one who gave His all.

House Worship

Gospel Group

House Worship: House Worship is a UK based worship group that comprises seven core members. The main mantra they walk by is “One House, One Worship”. They believe in the power of community and unity, with the ultimate goal of spreading the good news across the world. In the early days of the collective, CLAVIS 7EVEN took a chance and conveyed the idea inspired by the Holy Spirit to his six friends. This was the beginning of something special - monumental in fact because none of them were to know where God was about to take them. House Worship embodies the true meaning of what it means to meet Jesus as you are and be transformed. A safe place for people to come no matter their background. Their music transcends ‘typical’ worship and hymns but relates to the consumer’s experience and touches the soul. The UK is the origin of their story, but by the grace of God will reach the whole world. Join them on this journey. Welcome home
