Require All Police Officers to Take Anti-Racism Education
Improve Maternal Mortality Rates & Health Care for Black Women
Black women in the U.K. are 5 times more likely to die during pregnancy and after childbirth compared to White women (MBRRACE, 2019). We need more research done into why this is happening and recommendations to improve health care for Black women as urgent action is needed to address this disparity.
BAME and especially Black people are more likely to be stopped, searched, & arrested, than White people. To be non-racist is not enough. All UK citizens should be and continue to learn how to be actively non-racist & especially those in power, such as police officers.
Much like the existing mandatory requirement for employers with 250 or more employees must publish their gender pay gap. We call upon the government to introduce the ethnicity pay gap reporting. To shine a light on race/ethnicity based inequality in the workplace so that they can be addressed.
Introduce Mandatory Ethnicity Pay Gap Reporting
Teach Britain's Colonial Past as part of the UK's Compulsory Curriculum
Currently, it is not compulsory for primary or secondary school students to be educated on Britain's role in colonisation, or the transatlantic slave trade. We petition the government to make education on topics such as these compulsory, with the ultimate aim of a far more inclusive curriculum.
