Oppose the redundancy of Dr José Nafafé, Lecturer in Sociology in the School of Government and Society at the University of Birmingham

Dear all,
We write on behalf of the University of Birmingham’s students and staff members (and all signers of our online petition) who are concerned with the proposed compulsory redundancy of Dr José Lingna Nafafé, Lecturer in Sociology in the School of Government and Society at the University of Birmingham.

Birmingham is one of Britain's first major cities with a majority non-White British school population. The University should be embracing this diversity.

We invite you to sign the attached Open Letter (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GPKhb4ycC5aAPTV1YqtqT_0K_dPm91WL45hOJGiArxk/edit?pli=1) to the Vice Chancellor calling for a full Impact Assessment under the terms of Race Relations Amendment Act before any redundancy decisions are made.

We call upon the University’s management to stop the compulsory redundancy process and commit to its Equality Scheme and provision of module choices for Sociology students. Dr Nafafé is a loss which the quality of the course simply cannot afford.
We would be very grateful if you would use the template attached to send to the Vice Chancellor as soon as possible.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you wish to discuss these issues with us. We are grateful for your interest, your endorsement of our Open Letter and any other support or advice you may be able to offer. In particular, we would welcome any opportunity to circulate the Open Letter as widely as possible.

We would like to encourage you to send the letter (via email and by post) to the Vice Chancellor David Eastwood (d.eastwood@bham.ac.uk) and to the Head of the College of Social Sciences, Edward Peck (e.w.peck@bham.ac.uk).

We also have a petition: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/oppose-the-redundancy-of-dr-jos%C3%A9-nafaf%C3%A9-lecturer-in-sociology-in-the-school-of-govt-society
And a website: http://birminghamuniversityethnicity.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/diversity-in-our-university/

Thank you!
