Compass 4: Pandemics do discriminate - the poverty & inequality of COVID-19
If this crisis reveals anything, it's the structural depths of inequality that scar our country and the lives of millions of people. Yes, COVID-19 impacts on everyone – but it impacts us differently. This week, our feature guest is Ruth Lister who has put the fight against inequality at the heart of her political life, from running the Child Poverty Action Group to campaigning for asylum & refugee rights.
From her seat in the House of Lords, we hear Ruth's take on the present crisis, & our hopes of building a fairer society in the wake of this pandemic. It’s Bloody Complicated is a new podcast series that features thinkers, politicians, journalists, and community activists from across the progressive spectrum, created by Compass which campaigns for a Good Society, now available on The Real Agenda Network. www.realagenda.org
