The Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm is an initiative established on 9 June 2020 by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to review public tributes in the British capital, including statues and other landmarks.
The commission was formed in response to the George Floyd protests in the United Kingdom, in which protesters toppled a statue of Edward Colston in Bristol and defaced a number of statues across the country. The commission will focus on increasing diversity in London's street names, monuments, public sculptures and artworks, murals and place names.
Its fifteen members were announced in February 2021, and include Riz Ahmed, Jack Guinness, Sandy Nairne and Jasvir Singh.
