Racial Equality

Purpose of the group

To provide a forum for issues relating to race and anti racism and to seek solutions to the discrimination faced by Scotland's black / minority ethnic communities. To work through cross-party dialogue in promoting the role played by Scotland's civic society, Parliament and Government in actively building a Scotland free from racism.

The Group will seek to identify and address racism across society, including through learning from the experiences of BME groups
