28 February 2012 Trailblazers take campaigns to NUS activism conference
Trailblazers' East Midlands regional ambassador Mathy Selvakumaran led a workshop at the National Union of Students annual disabled activism conference on Friday 24 February.
Mathy represented Trailblazers at the event held at Leeds University and shared our successful campaigning techniques and achievements over the past three years with the delegates. She also encouraged the students to join Trailblazers in Parliament this week at the next evidence session of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Young Disabled People on higher education.
Mathy was joined at the workshop by Trailblazers Project Manager Bobby Ancil who led a discussion on the Lights, Camera, Access film and the activities that make up our access to cinemas campaign.
Bobby Ancil said:
As Trailblazers we need to make sure that we share our campaigns and knowledge with as many people as possible. The delegates from the NUS gave us some great feedback on Trailblazers work and I hope disabled students across the UK will benefit from our workshop.
