In the year following the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and a pandemic that produced starkly disproportionate deaths in black and ethnic minority communities, denying institutional racism flies in the face of a wide range of evidence. This meeting seeks to bring together a broad alliance against this report and will underline the call for a public inquiry into the disproportionate impact of covid on BAME communities.
