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.
Join us for a festive celebration as Autism East Midlands hosts its first ever Christmas Fayre. Autism East Midlands 2018 Christmas Fayre will not only allow everyone to come together for some Christmas cheer, but it will also see the closing of Autism East Midlands 50th Anniversary Celebrations.
Autistic, dyspraxic, dyslexic and other people with atypical brain wiring have particular experiences under capitalism. These experiences have positive and negative aspects, and for many people include distress and disadvantage. What are the roots and the causes of this experience? Can we develop the positives while removing the disadvantages? Can we resolve the negatives by tweaking the current system?
Janine will be speaking about rights at work and performing some poetry at this celebration of autisticness!
Venue: Charlton House, Charlton Road, London SE7 8RE
- free entry
- all welcome
- bring your own food and drinks
- other speakers/performers include: Emma Dalmayne, Callum Brazzo, Alexandra Forshaw
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.
Venue: Finsbury Library
As part of Islington Council Libraries' 'Echoes of Hollowy Prison' series of events, Janine speaks about Minnie Lansbury, who spend six weeks in the prison as part of the successful fight against unfair rates, and who died just ten weeks after her release.
