#Solidarity

Seeing George Floyd murdered in front of our eyes and the eruption of pain and rage which followed, has galvanised a phenomenal determination around the world to bring real, systemic change. It was a tipping point for those who are tired of yet another atrocity.

Benjamin Zephaniah said the number and range of people speaking out and marching in solidarity gives us hope, but the road is long. The work of Journey to Justice is an ongoing response to centuries of racism.

Racism is woven into the …

I remember being so nervous to navigate the underground whirlwind which was the tube system on my very first meeting with Journey to Justice. By the end of my time there I felt as familiar with the tube lines as the back of my hand.

Journey to Justice painted a far more beautiful picture of London for me than I ever could have done on …
