Representatives of the Buddhist Council of Wales attended the Race Equality First event for the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on Friday 20th March in Cardiff.

International Day for the
Elimination of Racial Discrimination 2015




Sadly, even democratic and peaceful societies are not immune to prejudice and violence. With the anti-immigration views expressed by some media and politicians in the lead up to the elections, there is growing hostility and discrimination towards many communities.

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination event with Race Equality First shared the facts as well as the concerns around immigrants, migration and asylum seekers in Wales.

The event included presentations and workshops to celebrate our multicultural society and explore the opportunities and challenges of immigration. The event ended with entertainment from Cardiff Bollywood Dance Society and a networking lunch.
