External Event: Your Parliament, Your Voice – The voice of ethnic minorities in the Scottish Parliament


An opportunity for representatives from Scotland’s ethnic minority communities to discuss your experiences and expectations of engaging with the Scottish Parliament with the independent Commission on Parliamentary Reform

The Commission on Parliamentary Reform was established by the Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament to look at how the Parliament can:

  • engage more with the public.
  • make clear to people what its role is.
  • be confident it has the right checks and balances in place so it can work effectively.

Having a strong, effective Scottish Parliament is in all our interests. The laws passed by the Scottish Parliament affects our daily lives in many ways.

This is why it is vital ethnic minority communities feel you can speak with the Scottish Parliament to make sure it represents your interests.

The Commission wants to hear if you already engage with the Scottish Parliament and, if you do, what do you think of the process? If you don’t, what would make you engage more and what information would make this easier?

Please come along and be involved in this important event and tell the Commission what you think – after all, it is ‘Your Parliament, Your Voice’.

There will be plenty time to ask questions, share information and catch up with one another over a networking lunch.
