The Race Equality Council has been in existence in Leicester since 1967 and its work is grounded in legislation beginning with the Race Relations Act 1965, outlawing discrimination on the “grounds of colour, race, or ethnic or national origins” in public places, which was immediately followed by the establishment of The Race Relations Board (in 1966). The Act was strengthened to cover employment and housing in 1967, by which time Leicester Community Relations Council was founded. The Race Equality Centre now operates within the Equality Act 2010, strengthened by the European legislation on Human Rights.
