    Oveturning of Roe v. Wade

    Oveturning of Roe v. Wade

    On 24th June the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the legal right to abortion across the US which had been upheld since 1973. 

    In this episode, we are joined by Young Fabians members Zahra Lahrie, Charlotte Kelly, Nicki Adeleke, Cecilia Jastrzembska and Amy Dwyer for a discussion about the history of Roe v. Wade, the legal protections that it ensured, the harms that many individuals will now face due to its overturning and what exactly has led to this decision.

    We also discussed what President Biden is doing to combat this by signing an executive order; data privacy concerns; comparisons with the situation in the UK and Northern Ireland and much more.

    The Spring Statement

    The Spring Statement

    In this episode, the Economy and Finance Network respond to the Chancellor's Spring Statement that was announced last month.

    In the face of rising energy bills, a cost of living crisis and families facing the worst financial damage since records began, does this mini-budget go far enough to address the damage and alleviate the squeeze that households are facing? Dom, Chris, Rosie and Leo from the Young Fabians Economy and Finance Network share their thoughts on the Spring Statement as well as what they felt was missing.

    Towards a 21st Century Curriculum

    Towards a 21st Century Curriculum

    This week's episode is all about the upcoming Education Network pamphlet, titled 'Towards a 21st Century Curriculum'. I was joined by Amy Dwyer, chair of the network and co-ordinator of the pamphlet, who gave us a bit of background behind the project; how it came about and what its aims are, as well as discussing her own piece for the pamphlet on climate crisis education.

    It was also fantastic to be joined by a few of the contributors to the pamphlet to discuss a wide range of topics such as decolonising the curriculum, neurodiversity in education, the subject of Citizenship, reform of the History curriculum and much more.

    Historic Labour GAIN in Earlsdon ft. Cllr Anthony Tucker

    Historic Labour GAIN in Earlsdon ft. Cllr Anthony Tucker

    Last month's local elections left much to be desired for many Labour Party members, particularly those in the West Midlands.  From many Labour Councillors across the region losing their seats to Liam Byrne's unfortunate loss in the Mayoral race - it's hard to imagine much to feel hopeful about. However, over in Earlsdon, a leafy ward in the suburbs of Coventry, Anthony Tucker gained a council seat from the Conservatives to complete a set of three Labour councillors for the ward; an historic first for Earlsdon!

    In this episode, Nathan and Marie from the West Midlands Young Fabians chat with Cllr Anthony Tucker to find out about Earlsdon, what went right in his campaign and what we can learn from it, the importance of young people standing as councillors and much more.

    Anthony Tucker - Labour Councillor for Earlsdon https://twitter.com/antforlabour
