Supporting Young and Black People in Rural Spaces

UK Youth launched the #YoungAndBlack campaign to amplify young, Black voices in order to improve their lived experiences and make steps towards a fairer United Kingdom. Throughout the campaign we have been sharing black stories on our social media channels. Throughout September and October we have hosted a series of conversations exploring black identity and intersections of black people. On Wednesday 7th October we hosted a webinar on Black identity in rural spaces, this event explored what it means to have grown up, live or work in rural spaces. The panel shared their experiences, highlighted what changes can and needs, including highlighting resources and organisation who have already started the journey of supporting young and black people in rural spaces.
