First Festival of Social Justice
Central England Region Holds First Festival of Social Justice
The Festival of Social Justice between April 16 and May 31 brings together the 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.
Festival organiser Gethin Davies said: “The Festival of Social Justice offers everyone a chance to take part in lots of fascinating and fun events, learning more about human rights and also hearing some great speakers, music and poetry. We hope thousands of people across the country, and even across the globe, will enjoy the diverse range of events we have put together.”
All events for the Festival of Social Justice are free but advance booking is recommended. Find a full programme and booking information here: https://www.amnesty.org.uk/groups/central-england
