UFFC is a grassroots movement for and led by the friends and families of people whose loved ones have died at the hands of police, prisons, mental health institutions and borders. The organisation was founded by Black women, and continues to be led by Black women, although they do work with anyone whose loved one has died at the hands of the state.
UFFC is the only organisation specifically named as a partner group on our GoFundMe page as we believe them to be one of the leading groups challenging racist state violence in Britain. We therefore a working with them to run a large project for justice.
This Peoples Tribunal will hear cases in which the state must be brought to account for taking the lives of Black and other oppressed people. You can learn more about the Peoples Tribunal in this Guardian exclusive by Aamna Mohdin: BLM UK to fund ‘people’s tribunal’ for deaths in custody.
