Black Lives Matter Resources

‘None of us can fail to have been touched by the death of George Floyd and the renewed focus that it has rightly given to racism and discrimination. The Youth Justice Board has consistently set the tackling of disproportionality as a strategic priority and we know that there is much more to be done. For us, this will continue with a renewed determination to challenge over-representation.’ (Keith Fraser, YJB Chair and Board Champion on BAME Disproportionality).
