We the Change: A Night of Power

On 15th October, RECLAIM and Young Manchester put on a creative campaign event called ‘We the Change: A Night of Power’. We brought together Manchester activists and performers to inspire and encourage young people into campaigning. 

We heard from Mea, Akeim and Charlotte who gave moving answers to questions from the audience.
 

Mea is a Project Officer from Kids of Colour and is working on campaigns such as No Police in Schools.
