Criminal Justice Anti-Racist Action Plan for Wales
Criminal Justice in Wales has launched its new Anti-Racist Action Plan, outlining the determination of partners to do all they can, individually and collectively, to root out any form of racism across the Criminal Justice System.
The plan has been developed to compliment the Welsh Government Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan (see below) to support a whole system, one public service, response to race equality.
From the outset, Criminal Justice in Wales committed to listening, hearing and incorporating the experiences and voices of those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities to guide the development of the document.

Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan 7th June 2022
The Welsh Government have published their Anti-racist Wales Action Plan. Co-created with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, the Plan sets out a number of Anti-racist actions in areas ranging from health, education, housing, culture and sport and many more.

The North Wales Regional Equality Network (NWREN), as the north Wales race equality body since 2001, welcomes the publication of this policy. NWREN has contributed to the development of the Anti-racist Wales Action Plan, working alongside other voluntary sector bodies and a broad representation of people from all walks of life across Wales, and especially from minorities themselves. We were able to bring a ‘view from the north’ to the debates and discussions out of which the policy developed. In north Wales, as throughout Wales, the implementation of the Anti-racist Wales Action Plan will improve the quality of life for all.

To progress race equality in Wales we have to understand how race is represented in Wales, what I call ‘race thinking’. Race equality goes well beyond public policy, to ask questions about the very identity of society itself.
