Hear us: young people on UK inequality
Published on 23 Nov 2020
Inequality is a constant issue in the UK. It can affect your standard of living, cause racial discrimination, even impact on mental health. Through all of this, young people’s voices are going unheard.
United Nations Special Rapporteur Philip Alston spoke to children from Bollo Brook Youth Centre about their lived experiences of dealing with inequality daily. By speaking to Philip Alston, they were speaking to the whole of the UN. These are their voices.
This video was commissioned by The Equality Trust to shed light on the stories of young people affected by inequality. Read more on The Equality Trust’s campaign here: https://www.equalitytrust.org.uk/young-equality-campaigners
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
