The Diocese of Exeter says it stands against racism in all its forms and wants its churches to be at the forefront of creating a more just society and tackling socio-economic inequalities.

The Bishop of Exeter, Bishop of Plymouth, Bishop of Crediton and the Reverend Tanya Hockley-Still, the BAME Advisor for the Diocese of Exeter, have issued a joint statement in response to the protests in America over the killing of African-American George Floyd in police custody.

It also references new research which shows people from ethnic minorities in the UK are more likely to die from coronavirus.
