Welsh Government consults on actions to create a proudly Anti-Racist Wales

This morning the Welsh Government has published An Anti-Racist Wales – the Race Equality Action Plan for Wales.

The draft Plan, which has been launched for a twelve-week consultation, draws on lived experiences of racism and has been constructed with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic researchers, policy officials, communities and other key race stakeholders.

This process has created a set of deliverable, achievable actions to tackle racism and inequality across Government, ranging from education to health, housing to the economy, and more.  

Also set out are the actions that Welsh Government will itself be taking, at an organisational level, to tackle systemic racism and inequality within its own structures.

The urgency of the Plan has been laid bare and intensified by the impact of the Covid‑19 pandemic, and the unparalleled visibility and reaction of the world to the killing of George Floyd in the US.
