Generation Rootz

This exciting and ambitious partnership project between ISCRE, Suffolk County Council Youth Service and Unity in Diversity CIC was funded by the West Suffolk Local Strategic Partnership. Generation Rootz seeks to work towards the end of racism in a generation. It is intended to support and improve community by developing relationships across generations. We aim to understand young people’s understanding of race and racism and chart how that differs from that of older generations.
