York Students for Black Training&Enterprise Group

In the aftermath of the unjust killing of George Floyd and given we have the fortune of running such a large platform, we are here raising money for the Black Training and Enterprise Group of London.

They are a relatively small charity, but what sets them apart is the incredible reach they have in promoting grass-roots bottom up causes to improve the lives of the BAME community. The sheer scope and breadth of their work means that every pound donated will make a far greater difference in creating real change.

BTEG mainly focuses on policy and campaigning work around education, employment and entrepreneurship. It also has a superb project called 'Equal Action for Race Equality in the Criminal Justice System' that we will explain later.

*********************************************************************
From 1991 to 2016 BTEG has:

1. Helped keep racial equality on the National Policy Agenda by directly consistently working with and advising various branches of the UK government, with dozens of policy briefings and research reports published.

2. Supported OVER 500 BAME Charitable organisations through increasing their fundraising capacity and training courses

3. Helped co-ordinate, through the charities they helped, the raising of over £10,000,000 to the BAME Charity and Community Sector

4. Held more than 50 conferences and seminars on racial equality

*********************************************************************

These figures are in addition to their great work in supporting young BAME people find apprenticeships, role models and business connections. They are involved in so many activities that no 1,000 word summary could even come close to doing it justice.

Here is their 25th Anniversary brochure here, showing just how much work they do on a limited budget

*********************************************************************

BTEG's Long Term Goals for the Future are:

1. Reducing the number of young BAME people in the criminal justice system

2. Increasing the number of young BAME people in employment and apprenticeships

3. Inspiring young BAME people to raise their ambitions;

4. Providing evidence of racial inequalities, and progress in tackling these, informed by action research which gives a voice to BAME communities;

5. Keeping race equality on the national policy agenda, including through our proposed Ethnic Britain bi-annual progress reports on racial inequalities and their impacts on Britain’s diverse communities.

*********************************************************************

In addition to ALL of this, they also have started a relatively new organisation to promote racial equality in the UK justice system.

Below are some diagrams which illustrate just a few of the injustices present in the UK justice system:

A 2011 study found that black offenders were 44% more likely than white offenders to be sentenced to prison for driving offences, 38% more likely to be imprisoned for public disorder or possession of a weapon and 27% more likely for drugs possession.

Asian offenders were 41% more likely to be sent to prison for drugs offences than their white counterparts and 19% more likely to go to jail for shoplifting.

We are trying to raise a total of £500 in support of this charity through gofundme and create real change.
