EVENT: Exploring the Impact of Brexit on BME Communities in Wales
Date: Thursday 16 January 2020
Time: 12.00 - 16.00
Description: Wales Governance Centre event. Too little attention is given to the lasting impact that Brexit has already had on minority communities and their organisations. Discrimination, racism, xenophobia and hate have always existed, but Brexit has acted as a catalyst, emboldening and providing a licence for these views to be acted on with deep ramifications for on social cohesion. This raises considerable health and wellbeing concerns for these groups, but also creates uncertainty surrounding their rights. The Ethnic Youth Support Team, Race Council Cymru, Show Racism the Red Card and the Wales Civil Society Forum on Brexit are hosting a free event, open to organisations and community at the Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay to explore the impact that Brexit is having on BME communities in Wales.
Open to the public: Yes
