This academic year CHURLS is focussing on two campaigns: homelessness in Cambridge, and migrants indefinitely detained in the UK.
As part of our homelessness campaign we have been producing a leaflet providing information and advice to rough sleepers in Cambridge, which we will be distributing around the city. Coupled with this we have conducted a collection for essentials such as food and blankets.
Our second campaign will involve both fundraising and raising awareness. We will be running a Valentine’s Day courier service in support of Asylum Aid, which will also function as a way to raise awareness. We also hope to organise a poster campaign and produce a short film documenting the impact of indefinite dentition on those detained. To compliment this we will be promoting Liberty’s online petition.
