We want to challenge the racial inequalities that prevent or discourage people from leading active lives and enjoying the benefits of sport and physical activity as participants, volunteers, coaches, working with or cheering from the touchline. 

As organisations, and the individuals within them, we recognise we must do much more to address racism and racial inequalities within community sport andphysical activity.
