Romani Gypsies and Irish Travellers are recognised as ethnic groups under the Race Relations Act1 1976, and they are protected by the Equality Act 2010. But prejudice and discrimination are still rife, affecting access to services, jobs and accommodation. Negative media coverage increases feelings of isolation.
London Gypsies and Travellers has asked London Mayor Sadiq Khan to publicly support the campaign and the efforts of Gypsies and Travellers in London to challenge prejudice. It is asking supporters to download and print campaign posters and put them up in local schools, GP surgeries, community centres and cafes.
