We are proud to be part of West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership’s campaign Root Our Racism.

Following a review in 2020 into the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities and the disproportionate effect on ethnic minority communities and staff, West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership have now launched an anti-racism movement with partners at West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit. The movement is part of an ongoing commitment to tackling structural and institutionalised racism.

Root Out RacismThrough educational resources, real-life images and stories, the Root Out Racism movement will encourage people to better inform themselves on anti-racist behaviours and practices.

In the planning of this movement, over 100 ethnic minority colleagues from across the Partnership come forward to share their experiences of racism and help their colleagues and other organisations to take action.
