Independent Race Equality Commission Calls for Evidence

Independent Race Equality Commission Calls for Evidence

Sheffield’s newly established Race Equality Commission is calling for submissions of evidence to support and inform its inquiry into race inequality in the city.

The Commission is also looking for volunteers to join its group of commissioners, to contribute expertise throughout the inquiry.

People and organisations are invited to give evidence in relation to:

1. Racial inequality in Sheffield
2. Your organisation’s, or your analysis of the cause or causes of racism and/or racial inequality in Sheffield
3. Examples of good practice in relation to reducing racism and/or racial inequality (from within the city, elsewhere in the UK, or overseas)
4. What you or your organisation believe would be the best way to tackle racism and/or racial inequality in Sheffield

The commission has been designed to provide a non-partisan strategic assessment of the nature, extent, causes and impact of racism and race inequality in the City, and will make recommendations for tackling these. A report for publication will be completed within 12 months.

Find out how to get involved or submit evidence on Sheffield City Council’s website.

We are keen that the voices of disabled people experiencing race inequality are heard so please submit your experiences to the Commission by the deadline of 18 September 2020.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
