Show us you care: exploring the cumulative impact of racism upon racialised young people in Wales
Day 1, 23 March, 1.45pm
Sharing insights from the peer-led research report developed by the Ethnic Minorities & Youth Support Team (EYST Wales) and Race Alliance Wales (RAW). This session is co-delivered by Jami Abramson and Nirsuhan Sudarsan.
Since then, EYST has expanded its mission and vision to also meet the needs of Black, Asian and minority ethnic young people, families and individuals – including refugees and asylum-seekers living in Wales – to participate, integrate and be valued members of Welsh society.
EYST Wales works closely with Race Alliance Wales (RAW), an initiative that aims to act as a collaborative and self-directed platform for individuals and organisations interested in achieving race equality in Wales.
EYST Wales and RAW worked collaboratively to produce multiple peer-led research reports, including ‘Show us you care: exploring the cumulative impact of racism upon racialised young people in Wales’.
