In the US, UK and beyond we’re seeing politics lurch ominously to the right. Trump’s racist attacks on migrants, from Muslims to Mexicans, are met with an invitation to the UK for a full state visit. Inequality continues to grow and the super-rich remain as powerful as ever. Meanwhile today’s youth face a future of debt, precarious work and a hostile political climate they did not create.

But from the Women’s March to Black Lives Matter to the anti-Trump protests, a powerful wave of resistance is building – with young people from all backgrounds at the centre. If we come together to share ideas, educate ourselves and organise mass action, we can pose a real challenge to the powerful.

Join the Global Justice Now youth network and a host of artists, activists, thinkers and organisers for an inspiring day of discussion, debate, performance and action planning.

It’s time to rise.
