the Windrush Foundation is formally asking the Department of Communities and Local Government  to consider making 22 June WINDRUSH DAY. 
The day would be an occasion to remember not only WINDRUSH passengers, but also all other migrants who have made and continue to make significant contributions to the prosperity of Britain. The day could be devoted to local social history and to celebrating its heroes and ‘sheroes’. Schools could annually feature and highlight them, and it would a means of fostering greater social understanding and cohesion. It could be a way in which young people, especially from minority ethnic backgrounds, develop a better sense of identity as the histories and contributions of their parents, guardians and friends are appreciated and celebrated.
