State violence and incarceration in the UK: intersections of race, disability and mental health
December 8, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Black and ethnic minority people with disabled, Autistic and mental health identities are often caught at the intersection of structural violence, racism and ableism in the UK. Research shows that people with these identities are more likely to be denied access to services, detained and suffer from state violence in the UK – not only by Police but also in the mental health system, the care system, the immigration system and in the criminal justice system.
Inspired by the ongoing case of Osime Brown and others who have been incarcerated or suffered state violence due to the interface between these oppressions, this event aims to highlight issues, key cases and think about how they can be addressed.
