Grenfell Tower Fire

Date TBC

Speaker: Bevan Powell

Moderator: Richard Reddie

This one-hour webinar is hosted by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) and the Baptist Union of Great Britain.

GrenfellSignThe Grenfell Tower fire took place on 14 June 2017, where at least 72 residents died.  The tower was in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, one of the wealthiest local authorities in the country, containing some of the most expensive houses in the world and with the highest gap between rich and poor anywhere in the country.  Grenfell was populated by poorer, mainly ethnic minority residents.  The council was criticised for neglecting its poorest residents.

This will be the fifth of five webinars focusing on racial justice in Britain and Ireland.

The link to join the webinar will be published here nearer the time.
