Carrie Supple (Director, Journey to Justice)
Mark Hutchinson (Co-ordinator, Journey to Justice Sheffield)
This session will focus on the work of the UK charity Journey to Justice, which aims to galvanise people to take action for social justice through learning about human rights movements and the arts. Carrie Supple and Mark Hutchinson will discuss JtoJ's work and experiences with local communities in the UK, supporting children and adults to learn about human rights movements, historical and contemporary, including those tackling the global processes of racial inequality. Through local case studies such as those in Newham and Sheffield the session will use film and music in the way it does in its travelling exhibition programme. A look at the local will offer connections to key actors and movements such as Bayard Rustin (LGBTQ rights), Frederick Douglass, Paul Robeson, Ida B. Wells and more recent activists.
Please have a look at the Journey to Justice website and in particular:
There will be an opportunity during the session to draw on participants' experiences. Please

- Have in mind a story, person, organisation or event related to social activism that is little known.
