In the second instalment of our event series Green Talks, we came together online to discuss how we could make society more equal for all. Green Party Deputy Leader Zack Polanski was joined by Cllr and Equalities & Diversity Spokesperson Ria Patel, Cllr Ekua Bayunu and Prof Richard Wilkinson from The Equality Trust.
We looked at the key drivers of inequality in society today and talked about the impacts of inequality on local communities before discussing what our policies need to focus on to tackle inequality at its core. Finally, our brilliant panellists offered their views on what a more equal society would look like and how we would get there before answering a range of thought-provoking questions from the audience.
During the discussion, we mentioned the Deyika fund, which was set up in honour of Deyika Nzeribe who was an inspiring member of the Green Party of England and Wales. Deyika was involved with so much including fighting poverty and austerity, tackling racism, promoting equality and defending the environment. You can help us support the Deyika fund here!
