Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns
The Committee for Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns (CMEAC) works to encourage and engage participation from the Church's Minority Ethnic populations at every level. CMEAC is the primary point of contact for advice and resources regarding ethnic difference and marginalisation, advocacy, and racial justice.

CMEAC's publications include: Seeds of Hope, The Passing Winter, Simply Value Us, Called to Lead, and An Amazing Journey.
CMEAC marked the bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act in 2007 by holding a walk of witness, bicentenary hearings and producing a pack for schools.
