Race on the agenda

Race on the Agenda

  • Social policy think-tank set up in April 1984 which works with London’s Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities and others interested in race equality, towards achieving social justice by the elimination of discrimination and promotion of human rights, diversity and equality of opportunity.

  • We achieve these aims by informing London’s strategic decision-makers about the issues affecting the BAME third sector and the communities it serves and by making government policy more accessible to London’s BAME organisations

  • Current policy priorities: Crime & Anti-social behaviour, Equalities & Human Rights, Community Cohesion, Health & Social Services and Regional Government.
