Poverty is one of the clearest impacts of this systemic inequality. We simply cannot achieve our aim of eradicating poverty without also eradicating the entrenched racial inequalities that are embedded within our economic, political and social systems and institutions. Poverty and racial inequality are inextricably linked, and there can be no social justice without racial justice.
We also added our voice to the EU Anti-racism Action Plan by the European Commission. We believe the action plan should focus on:
- Institutional racism
- Social protection and social rights
EAPN recommits itself to active participation in the fight for equality and racial justice and calls on the European and global community to support efforts for democracy and justice, against any and all discrimination.Read the statement Read our input to the action plan
