Launch of the Ethnic Minority Race, Equality and Human Rights Network

Tuesday 5th December 2023 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

In March 2020 the Ethnic Minority National Resilience Network (Scotland) was initiated by BEMIS Scotland and over 100 ethnic minority led community organisations to respond to the social, economic, health and welfare needs of communities due to the pandemic.

Following an extensive period of consultation members have decided to evolve the network to reflect long-standing race equality ambitions contained with the Race Equality Framework 2016–2030 and the evolving human rights compliance and legislative landscape.

We would be delighted if you were able to join us for the launch of the new-look Ethnic Minority Race, Equality and Human Rights Network (Scotland).
