Criminal Lawyer sets up new knowledge hub ‘Legal Lifelines’ aimed at supporting BAME communities
Jo Sidhu QC says “ I am delighted to take part in the Launch of Legal Lifelines. Having come from a South Asian background and growing up in Southall I understand how import- ant it is to make sure messaging cuts through to the hard to reach communities.”
James Jeffries, CEO of London Rock, the first corporate sponsor of the initiative, said: “We are proud to play our part in the Legal LifeLines exciting and innovative educational series, which will build a better future for everyone.”
Sayce Holmes-Lewis, Founder and CEO of Mentivity who’s stop and search incident video went viral earlier this year said: “My life is dedicated to supporting and empowering our community, especially our youth. I am seeing amazing engagement from the community and encouraging results. I have been the vicim of an invasive stop and search by police which was the result of racial profiling. I want to support the community in any way I can. The Stop & Search webinar and Stop & Search App by Legal Lifelines is very necessary and will greatly empower the community that I am part of and have dedicated my life to supporting and empowering.”
