BME Londoners manifesto: A manifesto for hope and recovery

Photo credit: http://www.obv.org.uk/news-blogs/bme-londoners-manifesto-manifesto-hope-and-recovery

Cut and pasted from the Operation Black Vote (OBV) website:
BME groups and individuals have put together a dynamic Black London manifesto. At its core, it calls upon the Mayor to help restore confidence between BME communities and the police, to creatively tackle BME unemployment and depravation by unlocking business potential in urban areas, and recognising the social, business and education hubs’ Black led churches and other faith groups can be. However, these are our ideas. What do you think, are there others?

I have commented and you can read my comments here:

I have covered the following topics:
- Islamophobia and Muslim communities;
- Other Equality strands, especially LGBT, disability, faith and gender;
- Health, especially mental health;
- The South Asian voice; and
- Homelessness.

I would be keen to hear the views of others - please feel free to add your comments direct onto the Operation Black Vote website - they want to hear from you!
