Janine Booth speaking at the Labour Party Autism Neurodiversity Manifesto fringe meeting, 25 September 2018

Venue: The Green Room’, Salisbury Gardens, Dudley Rd, Ventnor P038 8 1EJ. 

The Isle of Wight Labour Party welcomes Janine Booth, who will be discussing Labour’s Autism and Neurodivergent Manifesto at an event that is open to the public as well as Labour Party members.

At its launch in February 2019, Janine stated that this Manifesto would be,

“A milestone in the fight for acceptance, rights and equality for autistic, dyslexic, dyspraxia and otherwise Neurodivergent people through the Labour Party.”

Villa Vine: Tory-inflicted austerity has destroyed vulnerable people’s lives
Maria Villa Vine, Chair of Island Labour’s Newport Branch said,

“What excites me about this manifesto is as a mother of a Neurodiverse child I want change, acceptance and understanding for my son and others. 

“I have witnessed how the Tory-inflicted austerity has destroyed vulnerable people’s lives and I was absolutely delighted hearing Janine and the steering group at Conference in 2018 and recently this year’s Conference in Brighton.”

Engaging, quick-witted and intelligent speaker
Janine will explain Neurodiversity and these key principles in more detail and explore why this Manifesto is hugely significant for the Neurodivergent community.

A Marxist, trade unionist, socialist feminist, author and poet speaker, Janine is an engaging, quick-witted, intelligent speaker so this will prove to be an informative and thought-provoking event.
