It was good to be invited back to the House of Commons, on Wednesday 17th May 2023, to again represent the Windrush Justice Clinic and speak on the panel of the Justice for the Windrush Generations bimonthly rally.
What is great about JfWG rallies is the cross-party support they attract. Wednesday’s event was attended by Marsha de Cordova MP and Richard Burgon MP for Labour and Duwayne Brooks for the Conservatives.
A big thank you again to Garrick Prayogg and Roland Houslin for the invitation to return.
It was fantastic to have my good friend Patrick Vernon, the social commentator and Windrush campaigner, address the Law Centres Network Annual General Meeting on the topic of Windrush Justice and Racial Justice more broadly.
Am really pleased that Law Centres are continuing to play a central role in the global struggle for race equity and justice.
Thank you so much to Garrick Prayogg and Roland Houslin from Justice For Windrush Generations, for inviting the Windrush Justice Clinic (on whose board I sit) to the House of Commons on the evening of Wednesday 22nd March, to address the community, and supportive MPs and peers, on the work we are doing to help Windrush victims obtain compensation.
Thank you so much to Wintrade Global for inviting me to the Wintrade Global Summit 2023 at the UK House of Lords on Wednesday 15th March 2023 and honouring me with this year’s legal award.
I am very grateful to Viv Ahmun (bottom right), Black Men for Change, Patricia Lamour (bottom left) and Dr Yvonne Thompson.
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.
