Council backs Zero Racism Wales initiative

Denbighshire County Council has pledged its support to the Zero Racism Wales initiative.

The pledge states the Council is not willing to tolerate racism in any form and supports Zero Racism Wales’ calls for all organisations and individuals to promote racial harmony and implement commitments within the workplace and in their day to day lives.

The policy was adopted on behalf of the Council following a delegated decision.

Alan Smith, the Council’s Head of Business Improvement and Modernisation, said: “The Council is proud to support the Zero Racism Wales initiative which calls for a zero-tolerance policy to racism in Wales. This pledge is an important statement to show we are not willing to tolerate racism in any form.

“This pledge is designed to promote a more inclusive and equal workplace and society that gives every individual in Wales the right to feel safe, valued and included.

“I would encourage other organisations in the county as well as individuals to also sign up to the pledge.”
