Moving Beyond Tokenism
On the 20th of October 2021, António started a petition: calling out all senior leaders of mental health charities to take genuine accountability for their organisation's anti-racist promises and began a campaign to eradicate tokenism.
António's campaign gained the support of many. His petition was signed by hundreds of people and called the attention of the most public-facing CEOs in the mental health space. As a result, various CEOs have since met with António and committed to driving meaningful change within their organisations.
