The Catholic Association For Racial Justice (CARJ) is 35 this year. To mark its Anniversary year, it has published a history of the past ten years, which places its own work in the context of UK society during a period of recession, austerity and Brexit.
The History traces the work with schools, families and young people from marginalised communities, a Traveller Support Network, an Urban Network, advocacy on behalf of those suffering caste discrimination in the UK and informed comment on anti-semitism, islamophobia, integration/cohesion and many other issues.
In 2016, the Brexit Referendum was an event that changed UK society - polarising communities, families and political parties. Organisations like CARJ had to ask themselves 'what is an appropriate response?' The Government's Race Disparity Audit was helpful in clarifying the complexities of racial diversity in 2017. Since then CARJ has worked with others to address the global and local challenge, to identify vulnerable groups who need our support and to develop a vision and strategy for the future.
