'Do you know' performance for Cross Party Group
A group of young people from Leith Academy performed an excerpt from their 'Do you Know' Theatre piece at the Cross Party Group on Violence Against Women earlier this week.
They talked about the powerful learning and the changes experienced since being part of the sexual violence prevention workshops run by Nadine Jassat, prevention worker at EWRASAC. This is part of Rape Crisis Scotland's National Sexual Violence prevention work, now running from 10 Centres across the country.
The meeting was attended by a range of MSPs including Malcolm Chisholm, Rhoda Grant, Christina McKelvie (pictured with the young people), Claudia Beamish and Alison Johnstone as well as a range of organisations. It was very well received and the young people answered questions about the way ahead and changes needed to address the pressures young people face.
