Event description

Description

With: Richard Burgon MP, Shadow Justice Secretary

GMLC Patrons Maxine Peake and Robert Lizar


Join us for the Greater Manchester Law Centre manifesto launch

Access to legal advice, representation and justice can empower people, reduce homelessness and poverty, challenge the hostile environment against claimants and migrants, enforce people’s rights and prevent inequality and exclusion.

“...As a society, we cannot call ourselves democratic if the most vulnerable within our society cannot gain access to justice… This encompasses people being able to get access to disability benefits, it encompasses homelessness...” Maxine Peake, GMLC Patron

GMLC defiantly opened in 2016 despite starting with no premises and no funding, but with a commitment to fighting with others for free access to justice.

  • Since then, we have thrived thanks to hundreds of volunteers and supporters.
  • We have won huge victories for the people who come through our door.
  • We have been a powerful voice for Legal Aid and housing and welfare reform.


Our manifesto will set out our demands for change, declare what we stand for, celebrate our work so far and call on others to fight with us for free access to justice.

Join us on Thursday 11th April 2019, 6-8pm.

With thanks to Thompson Solicitors for their venue in Manchester City Centre.
