London is one of the most diverse cities in the world. People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities are most likely to live in London, with 58.4% of Black people, 35.9% of Asian people, 33.1% of people with Mixed ethnicity, and 49.9% of people from the Other ethnic group doing so. It is therefore imperative that we expose and eradicate all forms of racism within our Capital.
LondonADASS published a statement in response to Black Lives Matter on the 09 July 2020. Within the statement, LondonADASS committed to ‘do everything possible to continue to expose and eradicate systemic racism’.
UK Race Equality week (2021) offers us the opportunity to reflect on the LondonADASS Black Lives Matter statement seven months after it was launched to celebrate and challenge the impact of the LondonADASS statement.
In order to achieve this aim, we will be running a series of luncheons to review key elements of the LondonADASS work programme through a race equalities lens.
