The 1990 Trust

“Human Rights
for
Race Equality”

“One very dominant theme which emerged was the credibility and competence of the 1990 Trust to make a major contribution to the development of human rights policy and practice”:
“It’s absolutely crucial for there to be a national black organisation with a human rights agenda – if the 1990 Trust didn’t exist they would have to be invented.”
“Simultaneous engagement with the grassroots and with elite processes of policy formulation is almost universally seen as the basis of the unique relevance and power of the 1990 Trust in challenging racism and promoting equity.”

(Quotes from the 2001 Strategic Review of the 1990 Trust conducted by external consultants)

Black Information Link (BLINK) is the main communication channel of The 1990 Trust.

The 1990 Trust is the first national Black organisation set up to protect and pioneer the interest of Britain’s Black Communities. Our approach is to engage in policy development and to articulate the needs of Black communities from a Black perspective.

In Britain the term ‘Black’ historically has been a political one. It is used to refer to people of African, Asian, and Caribbean descent.

 

Our goals

  1. To establish and influence the practical implementation of the principle that ‘Racism is
    a violation of human rights’ for example via the monitoring and analysis of public
    policy and parliamentary legislation to assess the implications for and effects on the
    quality of life of Black communities and to keep Black communities informed of
    progress on these initiatives
  2. To establish an international reputation for excellence and innovation, as an exemplar
    organisation demonstrating the benefits of African, Caribbean and Asian communities
    working collectively in tackling racism
  3. To develop self organisation and community leadership to empower Black
    communities in tackling racism and in reaching their full potential
  4. To develop the Trust’s ICT services and functions to support, enable and sometimes
    lead on the achievement of the Trust’s objectives. For example via the development
    of our website www.blink.org.uk
