Anti-racist plan set for launch.

A new initiative to combat racism in Coventry is to be launched later this month.

The Coventry Anti-Racial Harassment Programme is to be launched by the Coventry Racial Equality Council, with funding from Coventry City Council.

The partnership scheme will be launched at Coventry University Technology Park on January 18 and will include a number of guest speakers.

Home office minister Mike O'Brien, and Claude Moraes, a commissioner from the Commission for Racial Equality, will both be speaking at the event.

Praveen Bedi, director of the Coventry Racial Equality Council, said: ``The aim of the launch is to draw public attention to the problem of racial harassment.

``It will also provide an opportunity to set out our plans in combating racial harassment in Coventry and highlight that effective action against the problem needs the support of all the organisations in the city.''
