As part of our #FromHateToHope campaign, we are hosting a series of conversations with people with a long-standing history with anti-fascism.
In this second conversation of the series, our director Balint Josa will have a conversation with Lord Alf Dubs.
Lord Alf Dubs is a Labour politician and leading refugee rights advocate. Formerly the MP for Battersea and Director of the Refugee Council, Alf was appointed as a Labour life peer in 1994. In 2016, he sponsored an amendment to the Immigration Act 2016 to offer some unaccompanied refugee children stranded in camps in Europe safe passage to Britain, having himself arrived in Britain in 1939 as a six-year-old refugee fleeing the Nazis in Czechoslovakia. Alf is now campaigning alongside Safe Passage to encourage the government to accept 10,000 unaccompanied refugee children over the next 10 years.
