It was a huge pleasure to introduce the amazing Fill in the Blanks campaign team to the Shadow Secretary of State for Education, Kate Green MP.
Fill in the Blanks are an inspirational group of young people from south London campaigning for reform of the history curriculum, so that every child in UK schools is taught migration, colonialism and the transatlantic slave trade.
We had a great discussion on the vital important of history curriculum reforms, and I will be continuing to work with Fill in the Blanks to support their work. Fill in the Blanks started their campaign while they were on the Advocacy Academy fellowship. I am proud to be the patron of the Advocacy Academy which trains and mentors young people from south London to work for social justice.
You can find out more about their vital work and how to support them or (if you are a young person currently in year 11 or 12) how to get involved here: https://www.theadvocacyacademy.com/
