希爾斯堡律師被提名為利物浦自由獎得主

一位代表希爾斯堡一些家庭的律師和默西塞德郡的前中尉將被授予利物浦自由勳章。

Elkan Abrahamson和Dame Lorna Muirhead與詩人Levi Tafari一起被提名獲得該榮譽,後者將被授予榮譽公民稱號。

Gladden先生說。"洛納夫人和列維對你們中的許多人來說都是熟悉的面孔,艾爾坎通過他對社會正義的持久承諾已經改善並繼續改善了許多人的生活,這是令人吃驚的。

"如果這些提名獲得批准,作為市長大人,當他們在市政廳接受捲軸時,見到這些最新的被提名人並親自感謝他們,這將是一件令人高興的事情。"

她於1964年搬到利物浦,在該市牛津街的婦產醫院擔任護士和助產士,在她40年的職業生涯中,她接生了約3000名嬰兒。

後來成為皇家助產士學院院長的洛納夫人說。"能夠得到利物浦市對這一工作的認可確實非常特別,我對這一榮譽深表感謝"。

他目前正在與家庭合作,作為對Covid的公開調查的一部分,並曾代表在Toxteth騷亂時被錯誤逮捕的人以及受伯明翰酒吧和曼徹斯特競技場爆炸案影響的家庭。

塔法里先生是一位表演詩人,他還寫過劇本,與英國文化委員會一起巡迴演出,並在布拉格查爾斯大學擔任駐校作家。

他還在利物浦皇家愛樂樂團擔任過兩個季度的駐場詩人,並在學校、學院和監獄舉辦過無數次研討會。


A solicitor who represented some of the Hillsborough families and the former Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside are to be given the Freedom of Liverpool.

Elkan Abrahamson and Dame Lorna Muirhead have been nominated for the honour along with poet Levi Tafari, who is set to be made a Citizen of Honour.

Mr Gladden said: "Dame Lorna and Levi will be familiar faces to many of you and it is astonishing the number of lives that Elkan has improved and continues to improve through his enduring commitment to social justice.

"It will be a joy as Lord Mayor, if these nominations are approved, to meet these latest nominees and thank them personally when they receive their scrolls at the Town Hall."

She moved to Liverpool in 1964 and was a nurse and midwife at the city's maternity hospital on Oxford Street where she delivered about 3,000 babies in her 40-year career.

Dame Lorna, who later became president of the Royal College of Midwives, said: "To have recognition for this work by the city of Liverpool is very special indeed and I am deeply grateful for this honour."

He is currently working with families as part of the public inquiry into Covid and previously represented people wrongly arrested at the time of the Toxteth riots and families affected by the Birmingham pub and Manchester Arena bombings.

Mr Tafari is a performance poet who has also written plays, toured with the British Council and been Writer in Residence at Charles University in Prague.

He also spent two seasons as poet in residence with The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and has run countless workshops in schools, colleges and in prisons.
