The Catholic Association for Racial Justice (CARJ) has welcomed the Race Disparity Audit published today by the Government.
Initial findings from the Audit show a changing, complex and many sided pattern of diversity and inequality. Some months ago CARJ highlighted this complex evolving situation and suggested a period of reflection to discern how we might work together to create a more just, more equal, more cooperative society .
The next step in this process of reflection and discernment will be the CARJ AGM on 4 November 2017, where we will seek to identify a variety of vulnerable groups whom we wish to support in a changing world.
These groups are likely to include:
• Migrants, refugees and victims of trafficking
• EU citizens in the wake of Brexit
• Young people in marginalised communities struggling to achieve their full potential
• Muslim communities seeking a full and equal place in society, and those individuals or groups who may be targets of radicalisation
• Families in de-industrialised areas who feel 'left behind'
• Black and minority ethnic groups in the criminal justice system
• Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities with inadequate site provision
• Victims of hate crime.
We will use information from the Race Disparity Audit to inform our discussions, and to plan the direction of our future work.
