PAST & CURRENT CAMPAIGNS
CHOKED UP is a campaign led by four Advocacy Members from the class of 2021. They are campaigning to enshrine the right for all to breathe clean air, especially marginalised communities who are disproportionately affected by air pollution in London.
THE HALO COLLECTIVE
THE HALO COLLECTIVE is a group of TAA members working to de-stigmatise afro-textured hair in workplaces and schools. Since its launch in Jan 2021, almost 1000 schools and businesses across the country, including M&S, L’Oreal and more, have adopted the HALO code. The code outlines a policy for institutions to commit to ending hair discrimination.
MY UNCLE IS NOT PABLO ESCOBAR
MUINPE: LatinXcluded is demanding better representation of the Latinx community in British society. They won commitments from Lambeth Council, the Arts Council, and King’s College London to add a Latinx category in their HR forms, and are now partnering with Citizens UK to lobby for a change on the national census that would recognise the more than 200,000 Latinx people currently living in the UK. They recently raised awareness of their work through the sold out performance of My Uncle is Not Pablo Escobar at the Brixton Theatre.
In 2018, cross-cohort members leading our Affordable Housing Campaign achieved a significant milestone in their campaign. The Lambeth CLT secured a commitment from Lambeth Council, and a £5m piece of land in Brixton from Transport for London to build the first Community Land Trust in South London - genuinely and permanently affordable homes
which can be bought by young people and members of the community.
