Race Alliance Wales has today published their ‘Manifesto for an Anti-Racist Wales’. Both the Covid19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement have highlighted the entrenched inequalities between people from different ethnic backgrounds, across the world and also here in Wales.
With 54 recommendations for change, the Manifesto for an Anti-Racist Wales sets out a road map for achieving race equality in key areas spanning hate crime, racism in education, employment, lack of representation, and barriers to healthcare and housing.
“ We are presenting this Manifesto in the hope that in influences the political parties in Wales to commit to specific concrete steps in their own campaigns for election in the forthcoming Welsh elections. We can no longer be satisfied with warm words and publications. What we need now is action and commitment to action by our political and public leaders, so that BAME people are no longer second-class citizens in Wales, but are equal and valued members of our society”Abyd Quinn Aziz, RAW Steering Group
