Description

E4Us Title

Equality4Us 2017 is a chance for young people to explore five key liberation campaigns for groups within society that face discrimination. We will be looking at what equality is and how it affects young people as individuals as well the reasons why the fight for equality goes on.

Are you interested in Liberation Campaigns? Do you have an opinion on hate crime reporting process' and want to make a change for young people? If so, come join us for Equality 4 Us.


This is the seventh Equality4Us event and builds on the success of the 2011-2016 events. The event consists of interactive issue based workshops and plenary sessions. BYC recognises that some groups are either under-represented or discriminated against in our society. In particular those in BME, Disabled, LGBT groups, and women, this year we will also be including a specific workshop for young people of Faith.

As part of BYC’s commitment to combat discrimination and to promote an active equal opportunities policy we provide specific opportunities for members of these groups, so that with targeted support, they can work to combat inequality in society. The purpose is to meet together, share experiences and propose ways to support each other and help BYC as a whole determine its policy and campaigns in these areas.

Hate Crime

This year's Youth Select Committee found that more hate crime is under reported. During this event we will be unpicking the barriers to young people reporting and creating a good practice charter to help services make sure their processes are young people friendly.

For the first time ever we will be opening up this event to young people and organisations from outside our membership.

This event is open to young people (up to age 25) who self define to one or more of the following groups - as laid out within the BYC rule book:

  • Young black and ethnic minority people;
  • Young disabled people;
  • Young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people;
  • Young women;
  • young people of faith.

Please base your ticket selection on the primary campaign that you would like to explore in more detail, however, there will be an opportunity to find out more about each of these groups.

This is a free event, however, spaces are very limited and there is usually a waiting list, so make sure you book asap. Lunch and light refreshments will be provided.

Travel bursaries are available to those that would not be able to participate otherwise.
