Toxic Air: The Disproportionate Impact of Air Pollution

4th June 2024 at 5:30pm - 7pm

The Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster)

Air pollution is an invisible killer, and Black communities, ethnic minority groups, and people on low-income are more likely to suffer the fatal effects. That is why we are hosting an event at the Houses of Parliament, to highlight the disproportionate impact that air pollution has on these communities.


We are delighted that Toby Perkins MP, the Shadow Minister for Nature, will provide a key-note speech during the evening. The discussion will be led by Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP, Chair of the Black Maternal Health Parliamentary Group.
