Lilly Lewis – Centre for Women’s Justice Award Winner – 2019

Lilly Lewis is a survivor and campaigner who has done her campaigning work over the last three years despite being incarcerated. After being sentenced to seven year’s imprisonment in 2016 she began to work with APPEAL’s Women’s Justice Initiative to use her story to campaign about the treatment of abused women by the criminal justice system. A peer mentor in custody, and a mentor for at risk young people when on day release, she intends to continue her campaigning after her release in December 2019.

Lilly was prevented from attending the awards by HMP Askham Grange, but was represented by Naima Sakande from APPEAL.
