Meeting at the United Nations

Jess at the UN

It was my privilege to have the opportunity to raise the plight of Palestinians at the United Nations. I met with Palestinian officials and was focused on gathering information on the war’s effect specifically of women and children in Gaza.

Unlike most conflicts women and children have made up 70% of the casualties. I've made links with women's rights groups on the ground and will be working with them going forward. Also pushed our UK diplomats on issue of the Israeli attacks on British aid agencies and that raising such attacks with Israel was not enough.
