Over 100 young people taking part in the first youth-led anti-racism summit to be held in Cork
Over 100 young people are taking part in the first youth-led anti-racism summit to be held in Cork.
The event includes young people from the Cork Migrant Centre, the Traveller Visibility Group and LGBTQIA+ community.
Organisers say the summit will showcase the talent and leadership skills of those who are often marginalised.
Speaking to RedFM News, youth and community worker Nadia Moussed says the event is a fine balance between sharing their pain and projecting a message of hope:
“All those young people are in pain. And we are youth workers. We listened to them and what they have to say. And one thing is for sure is they wanted some kind of visibility in our city. They wanted to feel that the love they have for the city is recognised and that there is someone giving them a break really.”
