Meeting with Cllr Rodney Bates.
On Thursday 15th, we met with Cllr Rodney to discuss our upcoming age discrimination project - councillor swap! The project aims to bring together local young people and their borough councillors so our youth feel more comfortable in using their voice.
Meanwhile, the disability group worked on preparing their series of video interviews to challenge disability discrimination.
Happy Easter! We are still working on our discrimination project, and it is shaping out well. Our first meeting back will be on 25th April.
We would like to take a moment to welcome our new chairs! Firstly a big thank you to our previous chairs Jacob and Ryan who have helped the Youth Council immensely over the past years , in terms of streamlining, leadership and diversity.
Today, we split into our two discrimination groups, age discrimination and disability discrimination. Age Discrimination Today, we discussed the different ways we could campaign against this discrimination and came up with a rough manifesto.
