80 activists build collective response to austerity

Over 80 people attended our second day-long gathering, called ‘Reconnect – Building a Collective Response to Austerity and Division’ in partnership with our friends at The Economic Justice Project. 12 workshops guided us through exploring the impacts of austerity on Jobs, Communities of Colour, Welfare Services, and building skills for change.

We co-created a Leeds People’s Charter to capture our learning, and create a shared resource for us to take forward to our organisations, elected representatives, and build into our own work and communities beyond the event.
