At the Stop The Hate conference hosted by Stephen Metcalfe MP.
Dr. Ukpaka, Rev. David, and myself were in attendance.
We had the opportunity to have a conversation with Roger Hurst PFCC, Stephen Metcalfe MP, Cllr. Andrew Baggot-Leader of the council, Cllr. Kevin Blake-Deputy Leader of the council, Cllr. Terri Sargent, and other councillors. Quite an inspirational event and I would love to encourage us all to attend in the future.
