The sun has been shining on the Wales team in a month that was kicked off in style with a charity football match that saw the SRtRC Legends take on hosts Pontypridd Town AFC. While the Legends put in a valiant effort, the youngsters edged it, taking Ponty to victory.
Despite that initial loss, it has been a month of positives as our very own Admin. Worker, Rosa Brown, enjoyed her UpRising Cymru Graduation at Cardiff Museum, in a ceremony also attended by Wales’ First Minister, Carwyn Jones. Education Worker, Kris Hedges, also rubbed shoulders with the political elite, sharing a platform with Shadow Home Secretary, Diane Abbot, at the ‘From Windrush to the Far Right: Resist the Hostile Environment’ at Hamilton House, London, and Campaign Manager, Sunil Patel, shared personal stories of racism in a moving speech at the EHRC Conference at Cardiff City Stadium.
As well as all this, we have still been focusing on the most important people in the battle for equality – our young people.
