University of West of England Bristol 20 April 2017: 9.45 – 5.30
This week Lisa will be talking publicly about being deceived into an intimate relationship by an undercover cop, and her fightback for truth and accountability from the police.
Her talk will be part of the Centre for Women’s Justice South-West of England launch event. The Centre for Women’s Justice is a new Charity which aims to advance the human rights of women and girls in England and Wales by:
(1) Holding the state to account for failures to prevent violence against women and girls
(2) Challenging discrimination against women and girls in the criminal justice system
This event will bring together survivors, activists, women’s sector groups, academics and others concerned with violence against women and girls to explore with lawyers how to hold the state to account and challenge discrimination within the criminal justice system.
Lisa is one of eight women who were deceived by undercover police officers in intimate relationships. They worked as a collective to battle against police obstruction tactics achieve a historic victory and public apology from the Metropolitan police
Lisa will talk as part of the programme called: “Up against it: Survivors and activists and their legal cases” which will be chaired by Harriet Wistrich, Lisa’s lawyer in her battles against the police, and the founder of the Centre for Women’s Justice.
