Festival of Social Justice
Oxford City Amnesty International group is to take part in an online Festival of Social Justice featuring talks, music, debates and celebrations which will be streamed into people’s homes.
The Festival of Social Justice between April 16 and May 31 brings together 40 local Amnesty International groups across Central England in an exciting programme of events for all ages. These include speakers, music, poetry evenings, photography exhibitions, theatre, panel discussions and the chance for local activists to ‘stand’ on a virtual soapbox and share what social justice means to them.
The festival also involves other Amnesty International activist channels and many other community organisations – all participating to spread the word about social justice and human rights and to engage as many people as possible in campaigning actions.
As part of the wider festival, Oxford City Amnesty is organising two live online events:
MPs speak out and listen in: a session with Oxford MPs Anneliese Dodds and Layla Moran
