Event description
A chance to discuss politics and religion with former Faiths Minister, Sayeeda Warsi

About this event

Quakers in Britain invite you to 'Quaker Question Time' - an opportunity for Friends to discuss politics, religion and everything in between with member of the House of Lords, social justice campaigner, and former government minister Sayeeda Warsi.

Lawyer, businesswoman, campaigner and Conservative politician, Sayeeda Warsi has held many roles, however she is best known for being the first Muslim to serve in a British cabinet. She has also been a long-term racial justice campaigner and was instrumental in the launch of Operation Black Vote, a not-for-profit national organisation that works towards greater racial justice and equality throughout the UK. From 2012 to 2014, she served as Minister of State for Faith and Communities and as a government spokesperson for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Outspoken and challenging on the issues that many people seek to avoid, she has become an interesting and distinct voice on topics previously considered taboo.

Join us for the first in a series of Quaker Question Time events designed to enable Friends to engage with politicians and activists from a wide range of backgrounds. It promises to be a lively and interesting evening.
