The voice of youth affected by custody deaths
The focus of both events will be on young people that have been affected by losing a relative or friend in custody and will include speakers, music, poetry, film and the Justice Marketplace.
The secondary purpose of the events is to promote and encourage donations to The Mikey Powell National Memorial Family Fund which was launched in September 2015.
On behalf of the organisers
“The plight of young people left behind after losing a relative in custody is often overlooked, not addressed or supported in a coordinated or practical way by either the authorities or the campaigning community as a whole.
“This event seeks to hear the stories of young people (or those that were young at the time of their loss), how they were affected, and what support would have assisted them immediately following the loss of their loved ones. Equally, the event will explore the impact on the family unit as a whole.”
