Jeremy Corbyn speaks at launch of clothing poverty campaign

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn MP has spoken at the launch of a new campaign to expose clothing poverty during the current cost of living crisis, and ensure adequate clothing for all.

The Right to Clothing Campaign is a new initiative by Sharewear UK, Jeremy Corbyn’s Peace and Justice Project and Dr Luke D. Graham at The University of Manchester.

It hopes to raise awareness of clothing deprivation, provide clothing directly to people on the ground through Community Sharewear franchises, bring about a change in the law which better protects the right to clothing, and thus ensure that charity is not required for any individual to access adequate clothing.
