ROTA Statement on Black Lives Matter

Race on the Agenda stands in lockstep solidarity with the Black community and millions of others across the world who are organising and demonstrating for racial justice, following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month.

We are campaigning for transformative changes to the systemically racist policing, which infects both the US and the UK. We are also calling for urgent and decisive action to dismantle the wider aspects of structural racism that still blight so many Black people’s lives in so many different ways.

CORE writes to Health Secretary to address the recent review into the racial disproportionality of COVID-19 deaths

CORE have written to Health Secretary Matt Hancock to address the recent review by Public Health England into the racial disproportionality of COVID-19 deaths.
