Race Alliance Wales (RAW) is an initiative which aims to act as a collaborative and self-directed platform for individuals and organisations interested in achieving race equality in Wales. Through collaborative work, we seek to contribute to a more equal, cohesive and globally responsible Wales, and to making Wales a welcoming place of safety where rights are enjoyed and BAME people can thrive.
It was initiated in 2018 and formally launched in 2019, when it was also granted funds to undertake policy and research based work on the experience of racism BAME people in Wales have faced. This bid allowed for the recruitment of a Full Time Project Development Worker. In a formal and legal capacity, the appointed staff - namely Leila Usmani and Jami Abramson in a job share capacity - are being hosted by Ethnic Minorities and Youth Support Team (EYST), as RAW is not itself a registered organisation, based on its function as an Alliance.
If you would like to become a member of the Alliance please complete a Membership Form which can be found here. Your involvement can be as hands on as you like and all engagement is voluntary. Any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.racealliance.wales
