Race and Community APPG

First Registered: 30/07/2015 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

The group focuses on issues of racial justice. It aims to increase the coverage in parliament of issues relating to race and ethnicity; to update members on these issues as well as on up-to-date research; and to connect the group with charities and other organisations working on these issues around the country.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
