MWNUK Response to the Report of the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities

 
The findings of the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities (CRED), published in its report of 31st March 2021, are at best disappointing and at worst irresponsible, invalidating as they do the history and everyday experiences of people from racialised minority communities. 

Muslim Women's Network UK (MWNUK) calls on the government to conduct a comprehensive audit of all recommendations arising from recent reviews of racism and racial disparities (see above) in our public services which refer to systems and structures producing racial inequalities. We call on the government to act on those recommendations which propose ways in which such systems and structures may be changed or replaced. This, we feel, would signal a step forward in acknowledging that structural racism exists, that it impacts negatively on people from racialised minority communities and that Britain has some way to go before it can see itself as a model of race relations to be followed by others.
