Come, discuss and organise against the different ways in which benefit, criminal punishment and asylum systems punish people financially
This is an online event in which The Coalition Against Punishment (CAP) aims to raise awareness and coordinate action on the unjust financial punishment of particular groups, including migrants, sex workers and families affected by imprisonment. We’ll discuss all forms of financial punishment, including fines, benefit sanctions, the financial burden of having a loved one in prison and being left without recourse to public funds.
We’ll start with short presentations by:
- Amy on the impact of fines on women
- Briege and Lynn on the cost of prison to families
- Nathalia from National Ugly Mugs on the experiences of sex workers
The second hour will be dedicated to group discussion and the identification of possible action(s).
Zoom details will be sent out to all those signed up nearer the time.
