About us

Race on the Agenda (ROTA) is one of Britain’s leading anti-racist change drivers. Working with communities impacted by systemic racism, ROTA helps create the policies and practices to tackle inequality.

Originally set up in 1984, ROTA aims to support and amplify the work of anti-racist organisations across the country as they work to bring equality to their communities. ROTA focuses on issues impacting on the Black and Global Majority communities.

Our policy priorities are:






Criminal Justice

All of ROTA’s work is based on the principle that those with direct experience of inequality should be central to solutions to address it. Our work is actively informed by the lived experiences of the Black and Global Majority communities and their organisations.

ROTA is a membership organisation, registered as a charity and a company limited by guarantee.

Together, we will end systemic racism in Britain!
