Dates and times:
I am writing to you on behalf of Dr Suriyah Bi at The Equality Act Review to invite you to the launch of our upcoming report ‘The Equality Act 10 Years On’, the largest and most comprehensive review of the Equality Act to date.
On Wednesday 14th July at 2-4pm we will be hosting a free virtual launch event via Zoom. Dr Bi will present key findings and our recommendations for reform, which pertain to the strengthening of existing protected characterises, the enforcement of unratified sections of the Act and the extension of the Act to protect against discrimination based on socioeconomic background, weight, homelessness, accent, hair, and immigration status. She will be joined in conversation by Lord Woolley, race equality campaigner and founder of Operation Black Vote, Marsha de Codova MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, and David Lammy MP, author of the Lammy Review looking into discrimination in the UK criminal justice system.
