At the request of Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer, Baroness Doreen Lawrence has published a review of reasons why Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities were disproportionately effected by the Covid pandemic.
The overwhelming message was that this must be a watershed moment for change. Black, Asian and minority ethnic people have been overexposed, under protected, stigmatised and overlooked during this pandemic – and this has been generations in the making. The impact of Covid is not random, but foreseeable and inevitable – the consequence of decades of structural injustice, inequality and discrimination that blights our society. We are in the middle of an avoidable crisis. And this report is a rallying cry to break that clear and tragic pattern.
We wholeheartedly recommend that you give it a read at www.lawrencereview.co.uk.
