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
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.

Deja Vu FM
I had a great time as a guest on Deja Vu FM, an East London based community radio station, on Thursday the 19th of April 2018, discussing domestic violence, the Windrush generation scandal and the recent spike in London knife crime alongside an author, ethical fashion consultant and a seasoned community organiser. I enjoyed sharing my perspective and demystifying confusing legal issues. You can watch the recording of the show HERE.
