In this episode Yasmin Sheikh speaks with renowned equality and human rights lawyer Chris Fry. His Sheffield-based firm, Fry Law, represents people who have been treated unfairly by a service provider due to their disability, age, race, gender, sexual orientation or religion.
Fry speaks about the landmark cases that have put him and his team of lawyers at the forefront of some profound changes, particularly for people with disabilities. Fry also outlines the huge impact the knock-on consequences of COVID-19 have had on certain groups—for example, by restricting their access to basic necessities like food.
Fry opens up about the work he and his fellow campaigners are doing to empower those people, and he reveals the fuel behind his unrelenting drive for justice.
