CARJ Press Release – Following the AGM

The CARJ Annual General Meeting took place on Saturday 3 November 2018 at St Thomas More Church, 9 Henry Rd, London N4 2LH (11:00 – 4:00).  Participants included  members and friends of CARJ from the UK and nine visitors from India.

CARJ has identified a number of vulnerable groups who need support in our complex and changing world.  They include: 

  • Migrants, refugees, victims of trafficking and EU citizens in the wake of Brexit
  • Young people struggling to achieve their full potential
  • Muslim and Jewish groups who may be victims of Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism
  • All victims of hate crime.
  • Families in de-industrialised areas who feel ‘left behind’
  • Black and minority ethnic groups in the criminal justice system
  • Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities
  • Those who suffer caste discrimination in the UK


With these groups and the wider social context in mind,  the AGM initiated a conversation about a vision and strategy for the future.  This conversation will continue during the coming months.  Local groups are invited to participate, and CARJ has produced a background paper to aid the process.  The paper, Equality and Community: A Review of Recent Papers and Reports, attempts to summarise the current situation in the UK and the challenge we all face.  The Paper is available from the link ReviewEqualCom.CARJ2018LHFin (1)
