Twenty years on from the 1999 Macpherson Report labelling the Metropolitan Police 'institutionally racist', how far have we come in the policing of people of colour in the UK?

Today, 41% of under-18s in custody are from minority backgrounds, compared with 25% a decade ago. In 2017/18, Black people were 9 and a half times as likely to be stopped and searched as White people. On London's 'Gang Database' over 87% are categorised as being from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and in Greater Manchester, Kids of Colour continues to hear more accounts of police on school grounds.

It is evident progress has not been made, and as Northern Police Monitoring Project make clear how 'diversifying the police won’t end institutional racism', it is essential that we consider a more radical way to tackle the deep roots of police racism that continue to affect younger generations.

In this colloborative event between Kids of Colour and NPMP, we will discuss young people, racism and policing. Joined by guest speaker Dr Patrick Williams, senior lecturer in Criminology at Manchester Metropolitan University and author of 'Being Matrixed', we invite young people and the community to join us in discussing experiences and solutions.

Please note: we hope to have funds available to support transport for youth groups, please get in touch with us if you work with young people and hope to bring a group.
