When Journey to Justice visited Liverpool, it brought four inspirational women together. All four are dedicated to seeking justice and changing the world for the better.
Each have taken different paths, from the US Civil Rights Movement to local Liverpool activism, but they all have the same goal.
Carrie founded Journey to Justice (JtoJ), a human rights education charity, with the hope of galvanising people to change things for the better. How? By telling less told stories of ‘ordinary’ people’s action for human rights. Carrie and a team of volunteers created a travelling civil rights exhibition, multi-arts and interactive, which has visited 15 communities. JtoJ’s second major project is about economic injustice in the UK and focuses on what we can do to create a more fair society.
Listen to Carrie talk about the Journey to Justice exhibition and its impact.
