Hosted by writer and organiser Lola Olufemi, the event will also feature live and recorded performances, and short talks on what we can do to stop the passage of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. Proposed amendments to the bill, which would restrict our right to protest, have already prompted impassioned protests up and down the country.
Olivia Laing, Dazed 100 alum Caleb Femi, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Candice Carty-Williams, Max Porter, and Eliza Clark are also among the writers contributing prizes for the raffle, including signed books, rare proofs, and hand-painted editions. Other prizes include personalised poems and a writing session with The Water Cure’s Sophie Mackintosh.
Raffle tickets are £2 each, up to a maximum of £20 for 10 (though donations over £20 are also welcome). Find more information about the fundraiser, and get free tickets to the May 14 event, here.
tomorrow I’m hosting a solidarity fundraiser to support the work of @SistersUncut and GRT community groups in opposing the new Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill making its way through Parliament. £2 raffle entry - live performances / good prizes!! https://t.co/9iwn3DIcfZ
