Rise Voice Vote is a youth engagement project which connects young people aged 10-19 years old with the history of suffrage in Manchester and with contemporary campaigns in their local area.
The project equips young people with the resources and tools to mount their own campaigns and make their voices heard on issues they care about.
The programme included a visit to the Pankhurst Centre, an in-school workshop, the co-development of a toolkit and on-line resources, and a campaign hack day.
The programme was piloted in Manchester in 2018, 100 years on from some women getting the vote, celebrating and inspiring local activism and the fight for equality through shared stories, learning and participation.
Join us on 4 April 2019 at 5pm-7pm as we showcase and PowerUp #RiseVoiceVote 2018 and launch the #RiseVoiceVote toolkit.
The event is being managed by Carol Ann Whitehead FRSA, Director of Dazzle, The Zebra Partnership, so you know it's going to be a good one!
Please note that this event is at Federation House and not at the Pankhurst Centre. Please register through the Eventbrite page.
