In light of recent events, including the violent deaths of Sarah Everard, Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman, Savera UK Youth and other young activists, will put their questions to a panel of community leaders and representatives.

The panel will include: 

  • Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner, Emily Spurrell
  • Labour MP Kim Johnson
  • Tracey Gore, Chair of Liverpool's Race Equality Task Force
  • David Derefaka, a BME Community Development Officer working in  St Helens
  • Manchester Cllr Rabnawaz Akbar
  • Kieran Bohan - Coordinator, Open Table Network
  • Afrah Qassim, CEO & Founder of Savera UK

The event will be chaired by Gamiel Yafai, Managing Director of Diversity Marketplace and diversity and inclusion lead.

The evening will include a discussion on the impact that the issue of violence and abuse has on the community and our youth, as well as how local groups and communities are working towards eradicating them. 

Key questions will come from young people and have the opportunity to submit questions ahead of the event. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask further questions in a Q&A session.

We intend this online event to be a group discussion, therefore this will be delivered as a Zoom video call rather than in webinar format. This means you’ll be able to keep your camera on if you wish.
