The Traveller Movement National Conference 2017, Friday 24th November

The Annual Traveller Movement Conference, 'Care and Custody: A Social Justice Agenda' is taking place on Friday 24th November.

The conference aims to provide a platform for community members, policy makers and service providers to present and discuss their experiences and approaches on the issues of community, equality and discrimination.

The morning session will included speakers from the leaders in both sectors, the field of care and criminal justice, such as, Coram, Family Rights Group, The British Association of Social Workers and Fr John Chadwick from Margaret Clitherow Trust

The keynote speaker for the conference is David Lammy MP. Mr Lammy will be speaking about the "Lammy Review", the Review's key findings, his hope for the legacy of the Review and how it relates to Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people.

There will also be a range of in-depth workshops which include: domestic violence, policing, LGBT and economic justice.

Through the keynote speakers and the workshops the conference aims to break down the social, cultural and political barriers that too often divide Gypsies, Travellers and Roma from wider society. We want to inspire a new generation of community engagement and community challenge to ensure that the unacceptable inequalities and discrimination these groups continue to face becomes a thing of the past.
