Closed petition Implement recommendations from previous reports into racial inequality in the UK

From the current health crisis to workplaces to the Windrush scandal there have been many reviews and enquiries into racial inequality. All have come forward with recommendations to tackle racial inequality and these recommendations should be implemented.

More details

Without implentation there will continue to be inequalities that affect people from a BAME background in many areas of their lives and also throughout their lives. Inaction perpetuates racism and the government of this country has the power to make positive changes by implementing the recommendations from reviews that the government itself commissioned. Surely that is the point of such reviews?
