Policy Lab: Crime and Justice

Date
Sun 22.09.19
Timings
3pm – 4:30pm

Boris Johnson’s government have declared themselves the ‘party of policing’ and are leading their rule with draconian criminal measures. How can Labour push back on this - taking insights from activism around crime and policing and put forward a truly transformative policy agenda? Join policy professionals and activists for a conversation that bridges the demands and framework of activism to build together a policy vision for Labour around crime and policing that re-envisions safety, justice and strengthens human rights for our communities.

This is part of our 'Manifesto for the Movement' project. Over the course of the four days, hundreds of festival attendees in collaboration with policy experts will build a ‘Manifesto For The Movement’ - a radical document that will be presented to MPs at the end of the festival. Get involved in any TWT Policy Lab to be a part of this.
