Refugee Week Photo Opportunity
A big thank you to all who took part in the Refugee Week Photo Opportunity on Sat 24 July at 12 noon (or at a different time and maybe even a different day if you cheated!).
15 of the 21 Groups in Yorkshire and the North East took part, which was brilliant, and you all made a powerful statement, together and at the same time, that this region welcomes refugees.
You can see all the photographs here:
or you can click on the link.
Even two newspapers in Scarborough have printed the press releases and the photographs!
I was at an Amnesty Regional Forum in London on Saturday (1July) when there was some talk of the regions undertaking similar simple but effective actions in the future.
Enjoy the photographs: they are very powerful.
