BRIGHTON AND HOVE LABOUR PARTY’S PROMISE TO OUR CITY’S BAME COMMUNITY

(in commemoration of UN Antiracism Day, Saturday 16th March, 2019)

  • We recognise the deficit of BAME people in leadership positions across the city and will invest in a civic leadership programme to improve the representation of BAME people.
  • We will establish a resource within the voluntary sector to work against the rise of religiously and racially motivated hate crimes providing specialised support to schools
  • We will continue to be a city of sanctuary for those fleeing persecution and hatred and are proud of our commitment to host refugees and those seeking asylum.
  • We will invest in an independent BAME led voluntary sector ensuring that the needs of the diverse communities of our city are supported by funding decisions.
  • We will promote an equalities standard with partners in the city including the corporate and voluntary sector to ensure fair employment practices and positive action to tackle BAME underrepresentation.
  • We will work against the hostile environment policies that have stigmatized BAME communities and provide guidance and reassurance, recognising the contribution these communities make to life in the city.
