Our response to the Report of the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. 

We were one of hundreds of NGOs that submitted evidence to the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities’ consultation on ‘ethnic disparities and inequality in the UK’ in November 2020.  We are incredulous that the report of the Commission published on 31 of March contradicts everything that so many Black, Asian and minority ethnic people know and experience.  You can read our response here.
