SSLP Update and Social: get the latest on us, stop-and-search and how you can get involved
Thought about getting involved with SSLP or booking us for a workshop, but wasn't sure if or how? Or maybe you would just like to learn a bit more about us and what we do and why?
Then join us for a relaxed evening where you can hear about the latest on stop-and-search, have a taste of our workshop and meet the trustees and facilitators that run them. Free drinks and snacks will be on hand to smooth the way.
What to expect:
- Learn what SSLP has achieved over the last year and what we hope to do over the next
- Experience a taste of our workshop to see how it helps young people better deal with stop-and-search
- Hear how black communities in London are organising against the disproportionate use of stop-and-earch from Adam Elliot-Cooper (Oxford University)
- Catch-up on the latest stop-and-search policies from the police and politicians
- Meet SSLP facilitators and see if you fancy getting involved
- Drink alcohol for free and eat some snacks
Who to expect: a mix of legal professionals, teachers, youth workers, activists, and hopefully you!
When and where: Monday, 6th July, 6.30-8.30pm at Kingsley Knapley, Knights Quarter, 14 St Johns Lane, EC1M 4AJ

SSLP was set up after the riots in 2011 (following Mark Duggan's unlawful killing) to help young people better deal with the misuse and abuse of stop-and-search by the police. We have provided workshops for thousands of young people on their rights and how best to deal with difficult officers without getting arrested.
We are keen to expand our role by recruiting and training more facilitators to run workshops and welcome ideas and invitations to help spread the word.
