Using Human Rights for Local Change

10 July 2019 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Social Rights Alliance North East invites you to advance social rights across Teesside and the North East.

Despite this, poverty and destitution are on the rise, wages stagnate and housing situations worsen. The North East is often hit the hardest by damaging government policies and growing levels of inequality.
