The recent report of the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities (CRED) seeks to deny the existence of institutional racism and has been widely rejected.
In the year following the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and a pandemic that produced starkly disproportionate deaths in black and ethnic minority communities, denying institutional racism flies in the face of a wide range of evidence.
This meeting seeks to bring together a broad alliance against this report and will underline the call for a public inquiry into the disproportionate impact of covid on BAME communities.
