The judgement is a wake up call to us all to remain vigilant so that history does not repeat itself and that as citizens we have an individual and collective responsibility to ensure public bodies, policy makers and those working towards a fairer and more just society are accountable for their actions. Racism still exists in 2012 and continues to blight the life chances and opportunities of those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. Voice4Change England will continue to advocate for race equality and the need to tackle the underlying causes for persisting inequalities.
