Statement on The Commission for Equality and Human Rights (CEHR)

We feel that the legacy of race equality is under threat by the current format of the CEHR. We must act now to both preserve and build upon that legacy. We urge all organisations and individuals with an interest in race equality to support this campaign by signing the statement below.

Statement:

I / We note the following:
  1. The CEHR in its current format will fail to deliver on race equality. .In order to ensure that race equality can be effectively delivered within the CEHR, we demand the following
    1. A statutory race committee;
    2. Guaranteed Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) representation on the commission;
    3. Ring-fenced funding for tackling racial discrimination and injustice and promoting race equality.
  2. That in order to deliver to BME communities we believe that the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) must be retained and reformed.
I / We resolve to:

Support the campaign to realise the above and make race equality a reality.
