UK visit of the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent
What an honour to participate in the main symposium of the UK country visit of the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent organised by fellow barrister and UN Fellow Priscellia Robinson on Saturday 21st January 2023.
Over the course of the afternoon and evening, Ms Barbara Reynolds and her UN colleagues listened to heartfelt evidence and testimony from a wide range of Black British voices, spanning civil society, on issues concerning education, health, housing, the environment, data, culture, youth, criminal justice and more.
The symposium, held at the University of West London, was just one of a series of events the working group is holding as part of its UK visit.
