Promoting Justice /
Protecting Rights

Last year, the Equality Coalition teamed up with the Transitional Justice Institute and Human Rights Consortium to organise webinars examining human rights issues brought into sharp focus by the Covid-19 pandemic. Originally intended as a limited series, the webinars continued for far longer than we originally expected (much like the pandemic itself). Events were held regularly from summer 2020 to spring 2021, covering a diverse range of topics, including childcare, domestic abuse, digital poverty, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, and access to justice during the pandemic.

The webinars have now been made available online for watching at any time via YouTube. Click the links below to view the webinar(s) of your choosing.

The Equality Coalition is co-convened by CAJ and UNISON.
