Windrush Justice at the 2023 Law Centres Network AGM

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.

Justice for the Windrush Generation

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.

UK visit of the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent

Speaking at the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent symposium in London

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.
