Janine will be presenting the draft Labour Party Autism and Neurodiversity Manifesto at this briefing event at Parliament hosted by John McDonnell MP. Other members of the steering group which put the manifesto together will be on hand to answer questions.
Janine has co-written (with Sacha Ismail and Simon Hannah) this pamphlet for the Clarion magazine, giving a thorough but readable explanation of Britain's anti-union laws and calling on Labour to carry out its policy to scrap them all.
Just two pounds per copy, from here.
This is the speech I gave at the fringe meeting at Labour Party conference on 25 September 2018 about the draft Labour Party Autism / Neurodiversity Manifesto.
A lot has happened since I said to John McDonnell at a book launch two-and-a-half years ago that it would be a good idea for the Labour Party to have a specific manifesto on autism and neurodiversity.
In July, I spoke at an event organised by Islington Labour Party women’s forum, called ‘Keeping women and girls safe in Islington’. There were various speakers from community organisations, the council and the police, plus workshops on domestic abuse, sexual harassment, hate crime, gangs and bullying. My job was to speak about harassment and violence against women on public transport.
