This event is for black women who are at the start of their legal careers and are moving forward to obtaining training contracts with the aim of qualifying as solicitors. Due to the success of our events in London, we are now excited to host our first event for Black Women in Birmingham.
An event exploring how Britain leaving the European Union will impact on the Black British Community. There has been a considerable amount of media attention on Brexit without a holistic assessment of what this means for Black Community in Britain. We want to encourage our community to be more politically conscious and to better understand the role politics plays on our community.

Many young men feel constrained by a very narrow range of options in terms of ‘how to act like a man’ as they move away from their family and towards independence in their local neighbourhoods. Some young men describe this as caught in a ‘push and pull’ between family values and ‘pressures to get into bad company’ in local neighbourhoods (home and the road).
Our aim is to raise the standards and aspirations of the next generation by using the older generation & peers to share stories, experiences and journeys.
For young men 16+
