Grenfell: the tragedy that changed everything

About this event

Four years have passed since the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower that exposed the deep schisms in British society. Today, what is left of the tower stands as a reminder of the ever-growing inequality and class divide in Britain. In fact, some would argue it was precisely the issues of poverty and institutional racism that led to the fateful event which took the live of 72 people in Grenfell. The tower, although situated in one of the richest boroughs in London, also housed some of its most marginalized communities – poor, racialised and migrant families.

Join us as we remember and reflect on the continued significance of this tragedy in light of ongoing oppression as well as resistance to it. Our speakers will address the links between the Grenfell fire and wider crises of housing, poverty, structural racism and xenophobia in Britain.
