A SHORT film exploring the racism and microaggressions experienced by young people in Britain has been released.
The film was created by the Student Commission on Racial Justice and discusses issues faced by by young people from minoritised ethnic groups, and how more needs to be done in calling it out.
Recruited by Leaders Unlocked in partnership with 10 colleges across England, the Student Commissioners brought the voices of thousands of young people to the debate about racial justice in England.
This includes 17-year-old student commissioner De’Andre from Solihull College and University who appeared in the film.
De’Andre said: “The opportunity to let my voice be heard is really important to me, and this project let me do that.
“Not just for myself but for others with similar experiences to mine.”
The Commission have developed national recommendations for change that will be delivered to decision-makers in a Manifesto for Action and showcase event on May 25.
The Student Commission on Racial Justice, now in its third year, has explored racial disparities in education across key areas including teaching and learning, world of work and college culture.
