CORE (Coalition of Race Equality Organisations) brings together many of the UK's leading black and minority ethnic voluntary and community organisations for the promotion of race equality.

In October 2010, CORE received a request from the Department for Communities and Local Government to produce a position statement to:

  • inform the Government's development of a race equality strategy
  • affirm a collective commitment to work with the Government to reduce racial inequalities.

The paper represents a starting point for discussions between the coalition and the Minister, highlighting 20 key priorities for the promotion of race equality across UK society on issues including health, education, employment and political engagement.

Further developments on this work will be here outlined shortly or watch out for updates on Twitter at @raceequality.
