Voice4Change England Launches Britain's First BAME Charity Magazine

EntSun News/10851999
CAMDEN, U.K. - EntSun -- On Thursday, 3 December 2020, Voice4Change England (V4CE) is launching Britain's first charity magazine for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. The 13-page publication will feature as a supplement within the Winter Issue 2020 of The KOL Social, a modern lifestyle magazine for people of colour that shares similar themes that V4CE are engaged with. The print magazine is published quarterly and is available in selected independent stores across London, UK.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought financial strains and challenges to many individuals and organisations, including lack of funding for charities. With this in mind coupled with the year's increased focus on wider social issues, particularly around race and equality, V4CE believes it is the perfect time for the charity to take a motivated step in a new direction.

Director Kunle Olulode is confident that the creation of this pioneering magazine will be a pivotal vehicle in making the relationships between the charitable sector, enterprise space and the private sector more understandable. Two areas of concern that V4CE have recently focused on have been improving the Windrush Compensation Scheme and addressing the immigration status of affected British citizens. The first magazine issue is themed around immigration. It includes harrowing interviews with two victims of the Windrush Scandal and also examines how previously classified UK government documents exposed Britain's immigration policies that explicitly tried to prevent the entry of ethnic minorities.

The KOL Social magazine will continue to present an alternative, photographic view of the world and include features on scarifications and the pain of cultural appropriation; challenges on notions of identity; actress Nina Toussaint-White on how BLM has sparked tough conversations; an interview with Brixton's award-winning writer, Alex Wheatle MBE and details of how authoritarian regimes across Asia are being confronted by restive populations. The theme for this issue of the magazine is 'Community', a pertinent theme to marry with the V4CE supplement's theme of 'Immigration'.

"Charities have to constantly rethink how they approach their aims and objectives. We believe that it is crucial that our sector evaluates how it represents issues relating to minority communities and is engaged with where their specific audiences are." – Kunle Olulode MBE, Director at V4CE.

"It is important for KOL Social to serve our communities in the best way we know how. Our mission has always been to reach difficult to reach audiences and those that feel underrepresented in the mainstream media. I am so proud and excited for Voice4Change England to launch within KOL Social magazine as the country's first charity magazine for people of colour." Marcia Degia, Founder & Publishing Editor of KOL Social.
