Workshop 1 – Our Human Rights Act: Your Questions Answered Friday 20th May 12.30 – 13.15 In our first workshop, we will answer some frequently asked questions about the Human Rights Act. We know that when campaigning, knowledge is power so this workshop is designed to give you the knowledge about how our Human Rights Act currently works which you can use to challenge plans to change it. If you have a question about the Human Rights Act, you can ask them in the ‘Questions & Comments’ box below. We will try to answer as many of your questions as possible.
