Event description

Description

What is it?
The Race Disparity Audit is a recently published report from Theresa May highlighting inequalities faced by BAME communities across the country. The statistics show that if you are from a Black or Minority Ethnic background you are more likely to face poverty, poor educational attainment, poor access to housing, disproportionate force in the criminal justice system and higher mental health rates.

Is this new?
For many of us, this is not new information and is just a mirror describing the unfair reality faced by people in our community every day. But these statistics of disparity across the areas of employment, education, housing, crime and health only present top-line data of a much deeper systemic issue in our society.

What can we do?
If real change is to be made, race inequalities can no longer be looked at in silos; now is the time to address the root cause and look at what lies at the intersection of all these issues.

This edition of The Speak Out is the first in a series of events addressing race-related issues, and seeks to bring people together to discuss the issues that matter and share a space for a grassroots response that will influence radical change.
