Motion - Equality and Good Relations

That this Assembly acknowledges that there will be no good relations on this island without equality, and no equality without good relations; recognises that people who are socially disadvantaged suffer most from sectarian division; affirms the need for strong political leadership and independent voices to challenge Government to progress lasting change; believes that Government must tackle the origins and manifestations of sectarianism and racism through a robust Executive strategy; notes the publication of the Programme for Cohesion, Sharing and Integration; and believes that the consultation document fails to provide an adequate framework to enable progress towards a shared and reconciled society.
