At a time when many of us feel the world isn’t listening, Jess Phillips is here to teach us how to get organised, speak out and fight against injustice in all its forms.
Jess Phillips is no stranger to speaking truth to power. Since becoming the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley in 2015, she has earned widespread acclaim as an authentic, fearless and uncompromising force for good in British politics, unafraid to stand up against injustice no matter the cost.
Now she returns to How To Academy to teach you how to dig deep, get organised, and find the courage and the tools you need to take action. In this conversation with broadcaster and journalist Matthew Stadlen, she’ll share her own experiences speaking truth to power – and share the stories of the accidental heroes who have been brave enough to risk everything, become whistle-blowers and successfully fight back.
