What we do
The aims of SSLP are:
To educate and empower the people of London about the law, focused on but not limited to, the law in relation to the police’s ‘stop and search’ powers.
To end the use of racial profiling by the police in the use of their stop and search powers.
To reduce the harm done to community relations by the excessive use of stop and search powers, in particular on young black men.
To increase familiarity with and knowledge of the legal profession and justice system to as broad a range of people as possible – we don’t believe we should all be subject to a justice system that only a few of us are familiar with.
