What is the Commission for Race Equality (CORE)

The Commission for Race Equality (CORE) has been set up by Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees to look at race and ethnicity discrimination in Bristol. 

Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities in the city experience significant inequalities in:

  • education

  • employment

  • health

  • housing

  • policing and the law


What the Commission for Race Equality will do

The Commission will: 

  • Develop the existing manifesto document to set out the areas of focus for Bristol

  • Develop an action plan to make sure what is in the manifesto gets delivered 

  • Hold public, private and voluntary sectors to account in relation to race equality, work to improve the current race equality statistics

  • Work with policy and strategy developers  in the council and other organisations to make sure race equality is included in all of their work

  • Talk to organisations such as the Police and Criminal Justice System about how their work impacts on our BME communities

  • Work with Bristol’s BME communities to get them involved in the work of the Commission

  • Provide independent scrutiny  with groups such as the Strategic Leader’s Group for Race Equality and Race Equality in Education Group

  • Support the development and recruitment of suitable BME individuals onto boards of organisations and other positions of power and influence

  • Support the work of the Race Equality Network
