Jess Phillips Keynote Address - Interpersonal Violence Conference
- Bramall Music Building, University of Birmingham
- Friday 2 March 2018 (13:00-14:30)
Jess Phillips, Birmingham Yardley’s MP, will deliver the Keynote Address for the UoB's Centre for Crime Justice and Policing (CCJP) Interpersonal Violence Conference on 2nd March at 13:00, at the Elgar Concert Hall, Bramall Music Building. Come learn about the CCJP, a domestic violence intervention programme recently evaluated by CCJP researchers, and hear from Jess herself.
Jess has committed her life to improving the lives of others, especially the most vulnerable, and spent five years working for Women’s Aid supporting and defending women. Since becoming an MP, Jess has continued her fight to support those who need it the most and she has been the Victims Champion at Birmingham City Council, lobbying police and criminal justice organisations on behalf of victims, and she also served on the West Midlands Police and Crime Panel. Jess has been appointed to the Women and Equalities Committee, the Backbench Business Committee and Chair of the Women’s PLP. She has earned a reputation for plain speaking since being elected, unfazed by threats and calling out sexist attitudes as she promotes women’s rights.
No reservations are required to attend the session from 13:00 and hear Jess speak, but space is limited so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
