The Traveller Movement in partnership with the Zahid Mubarek Trust (ZMT) and Partners of Prisoners POPs launched a campaign called a Record of our own. This campaign was launched in June 2020 until March 2021.
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. You can read the report here
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.
