Speaking for Labour to adopt neurodiversity policy

ND Labour

The Labour Party's 2021 National Policy Forum report contained no mention of neurodiversity, despite a detailed and popular submission from Neurodivergent Labour to the Forum. So Janine proposed to Conference that it 'refer back' that section of the report so that the NPF would have to consider including this policy. This is what happened at Conference on Monday 27 September ...

Calling for Labour to adopt policy on neurodiversity

Proposing neurodiversity reference back at Labour conference

At 2021 Labour Party conference, I moved a 'reference back' of the National Policy Forum report, due to its failure to include any policy on neurodiversity, despite a detailed submission being made to the policy forum process. This is what I said in the one minute allocated. Delegates passed the reference back.

The 1921 Poplar Rates Rebellion: lessons for today

One hundred years ago, a big movement grew in the east London borough of Poplar, headed by thirty councillors who went to prison rather than levy extortionate rates or cut services to the working-class population that elected them. ‘Poplarism’ won.

Is this just a dusty-but-interesting episode from history? Or does it contain inspiration and lessons for today?

Safety, Equality, Solidarity!

Reasonable Adjustments are Plan B

Speaking at TUC DWC 2021

This is what Janine said in the debate about Reasonable Adjustments for Disabled Workers at the TUC Disabled Workers' Conference on 11 March 2021.

 

 

I’ll start with what might be a provocative statement:

Reasonable adjustments for individual workers are Plan B. Plan A is an accessible workplace.
