A Record of our own
The Traveller Movement in partnership with the Zahid Mubarek Trust (ZMT) and other organisations are launching a new campaign called A Record of our own.
The campaign aims to record the experiences of prisoners, prison leavers and their families from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, including Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people, during Covid-19.
The ZMT will lead on publishing a report based on the findings of this project and will feed into ongoing high-profile reviews.
Importantly, the campaign will amplify ‘unheard voices’ to inform the decision-making process by the Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service.
