Last year the Grenfell Tower fire highlighted the failure of our political discussions to include and provide adequate housing for those quickly being left behind. Into the gap has stepped social activists doing much more than raising awareness but channeling funds, organising and campaigning. Their response to Grenfell has shaped our engagement with politicians and the press. This session explores the consequences of Grenfell on activist movements with community organiser Pilgrim Tucker and more guests to be announced.
Pilgrim is a community organiser and campaigner who has worked for trade unions and charities. Her work focuses on housing and estate regeneration and she supported the Grenfell Tower Residents Campaign and the Grenfell Action Group.
