A new Action Plan to turn the tide in the fight against racism

On 16 September 2020, on the occasion of her State of the Union Address, President Ursula von der Leyen said: “Progress on fighting racism and hate is fragile – it is hard won but very easily lost. So now is the moment to make change. To build a truly anti-racist Union – that goes from condemnation to action. And the Commission is putting forward an action plan to start making that happen.”
