This position statement was produced in response to a request from the Department for Communities and Local Government to:

  • inform the Government's development of a race equality strategy
  • affirm a collective commitment to work with the Government to reduce racial inequalities.

The paper represents a starting point for discussions between the Coalition of BME VCS organisations and the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and Lead Minister for Race Equality, highlighting 20 key priorities for the promotion of race equality across UK society on issues including health, education, employment and political engagement.
