Young people from Warwickshire Youth Parliament meet a Baroness
On Tuesday 12th April 2016 Karampreet Gill, Penny-Lea Buckland, Curtis Kay, Declan Smith, Hassan Khan and James Andrews; members of Warwickshire Youth Parliament; attended the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioners, “Living with Difference Conference”, which was held at Dunchurch Park Hotel.
The key note speaker for the event was The Rt Hon the Baroness Butler-Sloss GBE who spoke about her contributions to the Living with Difference report which she recently contributed. Over lunch she took time to meet the young people and have her photograph taken with them. Other guest speakers included Ron Ball (Warwickshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner), Cllr John Horner (Warwickshire County Council and Chief Constable Martin Jelley (Warwickshire Police).
Warwickshire Youth Parliament’s main campaign for this year is tackling racism and religious discrimination with a specific focus on people from the Jewish and Muslim faith. Therefore the content of the conference was extremely relevant to what we needed to know about and will help us in the action we take forward.
