This country owes a huge debt to the Windrush generation. The injustices that the Windrush generation and their families have faced have not gone away, as they struggle to secure their status and access the compensation they deserve.

Three years on from the breaking of the Windrush scandal, we invite you to join us for this discussion, on Windrush Day 2020, on the ongoing campaign for justice for the Windrush generation and descendants.

Join us to hear from:

  • Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, on the ongoing fight for justice for the Windrush generation and their descendants;
  • Campaigner Patrick Vernon OBE on the ongoing injustices faced by the Windrush generation and the need for better understanding of the history of the Windrush generation
  • A panel of experts including Arike Oke of the Black Cultural Archives, lawyer and campaigner Jacqueline McKenzie of the Centre for Migration Advice and Research and Pastor Clive Foster of Nottingham Pilgrim Church, who will open a conversation on the barriers to justice that the Windrush generation continue to face, as well as the promise of reform reflected in the Windrush Lessons Learned Review; and
  • Community groups organising new campaigns as part of the wider fight for justice for migrants.

We would love to be joined on the day by those who have experienced the injustice of the policies which led to the Windrush scandal and their families; as well as community organisations and those working in local government across London.
