Last month Coventry Youth Activists (CYA) were joined by Peace First – a non-profit organisation empowering young people to create a just and peaceful world.
Tahmid travelled from London to help the group share things they felt passionate about and wanted to change. The result was not just one but two new campaigns for the young activists to start working on with a clear strategy for the year and new ideas. They are:
Creating and increasing representation of people with additional needs in the media and spreading positive perceptions of what they can achieve.
Action against Facebook
Challenging how Facebook handles people who discriminate against people who have a disability.
They have blogged about their experience here, including why both subjects are important to CYA. There’s also a special request involving a lorry and a sofa – check out the blog to discover why!
Look out for more on their plans very soon here on our website and across social media.
CYA is a campaign group changing young people’s lives in Coventry. Its members decide on the issues that matter to them and set about making things better for themselves and others.
