The United Families & Friends Campaign has some funds to support affected family members to attend the INTERROGATING STATE VIOLENCE: CUSTODIAL DEATHS, JUSTICE AND RESISTANCE conference that will take place on 26 October 2018 in London.

The conference aims to bring to focus research on the issue of deaths in custody in the UK. The anniversary event will map trajectories of struggles for justice over two decades, highlighting new research and policy directions, as well as offering contextualised and historical understandings of state violence.

The conference will be followed by the UFFC 20th Anniversary Procession on Saturday 27 October 2018 at Trafalgar Square, London.

Keynote speakers at the conference will be:

1. Janet Alder – Sister of Christopher Alder who died in Hull Police Station in 1998 and who has campaigned for justice ever since her brothers’ death.

2. Sherene Razack – Distinguished Professor and the Penney Kanner Endowed Chair in Women’s Studies, Canada.

The Hosting organisations are United Families & Friends Campaign, the Centre for Research on Race and Law, Birkbeck Law School, Birkbeck College, University of London, Migrant Media and 4WardEverUK.
