Voices of Grenfell
Over a year since the Grenfell Tower fire, many survivors continue to live in temporary accommodation. The destruction of the tower and its aftermath have shown that safety comes at a certain price, making the social divide between those who can afford to pay this price and those who cannot more apparent than ever. In particular, the fire has revealed the urgency of its survivors having a greater voice and stronger representation.
The Grenfell Tower Inquiry was launched the day after the tragedy but has been critiqued for failing to adequately address the concerns of the aggrieved.
This event beings together survivors of the Grenfell fire whose stories have drawn attention to the need for a wider restorative effort to rebuild their lives. The speakers will be survivors of the tragedy, alongside Sam Stein QC, the barrister representing residents in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry
