4 April 2012 London Trailblazers discuss campaigns at regional group meeting

On Saturday 31 March, London Trailblazers joined forces for a new extended regional group meeting  at the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Office in Southwark.

The group discussed the progress made in the hate crime and cinema campaign and there were updates on the recent All Party Parliamentary Group meetings.

The campaigners also shared their  experiences of house hunting as a disabled person and completed the new housing accessibility questionnaire.

Maisie Essam from King's College London also introduced a piece of research she is undertaking on transport and accessibility in London.

In the afternoon, Trailblazers campaigners watched the screening of ‘A Life Worth Living: Pushing the limits of Duchenne'  which has recently featured on Channel 4 News . Later on the he group had the opportunity to have a Q&A session with Jon about the making of the film.

Trailblazer, Sulaiman Khan said:

I really enjoyed the day and it was good to see some new faces. We had an opportunity to talk about the current campaigns at the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and what they have done so far. Also, we talked about future campaigns and what we would like to see happening next. We also discussed how these regional group meetings could move forward.

It's nice to see that Trailblazers continues to grow.

Trailblazers have been running regional group meetings across the UK since July 2008.
