Mulberry Youth Conference unites against hate

On 28th March, Mulberry School for Girls hosted our annual Youth Conference.  Its title was 'Unite against Hate' and it explored intersectionality between race, gender and other aspects of our identities. 

We invited delegates to consider ways in which they were privileged as well as ways in which they were disadvantaged and challenged them to decide on actions they could take to make a difference.
