Several race equality organisations have worked together to create a response (www.vcatrafford.org/sites/default/files/Integrationstrategybriefing.pdf) to the Government’s recent publication of its Integration Strategy (www.communities.gov.uk/publications/communities/integration)
Runnymede Trust and Voice4Change England are working together to send the briefing out to target MPs. Runnymede has also written to Andrew Stunell, the Minister responsible for Race Equality. To support the briefing they are also currently working on tabling an EDM calling for a race equality strategy and will update you on progress.
It would be helpful if organisations could write their own letters to Andrew Stunell, and send the briefing to their local MPs and own parliamentary contacts. The more this is sent round, the more impact it will have. It would be appreciated if you copy/forward Vicki at Runnymede Trust and Jemma at Voice4Change England letters sent so that they have an overview.
Once the EDM is tabled Voice4Change England will create a function on our website allowing other organisations to pledge their support. This will be available on www.voice4change-england.co.uk
