Channel 4 Television presents special documentaries – from 1995 – examining the death of Joy Gardner in 1993 and the subsequent public campaign that culminated in the trial at the Old Bailey of those accused of causing her death.
Joy Gardner’s death in 1993, forensically detailed in Justice for Joy, caused public outcry. In one of the films author Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff asks Joy’s daughter Lisa “Who has the current Windrush scandal ignored?”
4WardEverUK and Migrant Media have submitted a grant application to the Edge Fund for a project that would essentially be the provision of a sessional role for a National Organiser.
A sessional worker would identify and manage opportunities for up to 3 major pay-to-attend events each year which will help to raise awareness of deaths in state custody, galvanise collaboration and raise money for the National Family Fund.
