The Gangs Matrix + Q&A
This February, we were at The Bernie Grant Arts Centre, where 4FRONT Support Worker, Andre Wallace-Loizou premiered a documentary that he produced and directed about the Gangs Matrix. The documentary draws attention to the ways in which the Gangs Matrix is racist, illegitimate and unfit for purpose and includes insight from a range of experts, including Katrina Ffrench, the CEO of StopWatch, Benson Egwuonwu, Commercial Litigation Solicitor and Kusai Rahal, The 4Front Project's Head of Community Support.
In the Q+A that followed, it became clear that more needs to be done to challenge the Gangs Matrix and ensure our communities human rights are upheld. Watch Andre's documentary here. Find out if you are on the Gangs Matrix by making a Subject Access Request to your local police station. Information and templates can be found here.
