We are really sorry to hear the deeply sad news that Jess Search, our outgoing Chair, passed away earlier this week following her recent cancer diagnosis. You can read the formal announcement here.

Jess has been an amazing ally of IPPR for many years having been on the board since 2010. She brought a huge amount of passion, love and energy to IPPR - and the progressive movement as a whole. We will all miss her greatly.

We at IPPR will be taking some time to grieve and regroup, and then will continue her legacy in the way she would have wanted us to: by fighting for a more just and sustainable society.
