Response to Sewell report  


A response to the Government's recent report on race relations in the UK has been issued by the Racial Justice Advocacy Forum


RJAFThe Racial Justice Advocacy forum (RJAF) is a new ecumenical Christian entity which seeks to speak prophetically on behalf of Black and Brown Christians to government on racial injustice challenges and reparations. 

The forum comprises of representatives from various Christian institutions such as the Salvation Army, the Evangelical Alliance, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, the Ascension Trust, Sam Sharpe Project, Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church, the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). 

Its new report has been written in response to the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities report (March 2021). The Commission, chaired by education consultant Tony Sewell, was set up in response to the killing of George Floyd in 2020 and the Black Lives Matter protests that have shaped public conversations about racism. 

The RJAF response reflects a number of expressions of concern from various constituents it has received about the report, and seeks to make a series of recommendations that will 'help churches to begin or continue engaging with racial injustice in the twenty-first century.'
