In Conversation with... Naima Sakande

In this week’s episode, Edwina speaks to advocate and campaigner, Naima Sakande about her work challenging the practice of imprisonment for non-payment of Council Tax and TV license fines and its disproportionate impact on women and children. Naima is the Women’s Justice Advocate at justice charity APPEAL, using impact litigation to challenge miscarriages of justice for women experiencing multiple and severe disadvantage. She produces APPEAL’S Surviving Injustice podcast, is a trustee of the charity Women in Prison and creator and host of the podcast, Third Culture.

 

We are encouraging our UK listeners to sign the petition calling for repeal of the law that allows imprisonment as a penalty for non-payment of Council Tax.
