Our next Themed Social is scheduled for Wednesday 11th February from 6.30 – 9.30pm in the Social Area on 2nd floor of Ebor Court.
Our theme is Advocacy – or helping people to speak up, or to get their voice heard
There will be
- Pizza and popcorn (bring your own drinks, please)
- A short talk from Derek Sankar, Director of Advocacy Support
- A screening of the film Pride (Cert 15) – a story of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners’ strike in 1984.
- A discussion of what Advocacy means as a volunteer at LASSN, and how we can best help people find their voice.
The film might not be an obvious choice, but a) it’s brilliant and b) it explores themes of what it means to stand alongside other people who are experiencing tough times. We hope it will make for some interesting discussions afterwards.
