The Working Group of Experts on People of African (WGEPAD) Descent public session Data for Racial Justice was held in Geneva from 25-29 March 2019.  This thematic session  involved specific focus on its mapping exercise and brought together experts to discuss the human rights situation of people of African descent globally. It also involved a comprehensive look at varied intersections of big data and racial justice (and injustice) globally.

We were a handful of UK civil society organisations that were invited to submit a baseline data set on the Human Rights of People of African Descent in England and Wales.

Our data set contributed to WGEPAD global mapping exercise of the Human Rights of People of African Descent, here.

This session directly came out of our earlier recommendations that were accepted at the 20th session, “Leaving no one behind, people of African descent and the Sustainable Development Goals”, 3-7 April 2017
