HuManifesto Launch Event

Today the Leeds Poverty Truth Commission launched a Humanifesto for Leeds at an event attended by 250+ people at the Leeds City Museum.

Hosted by Commissioners Jamie Jones-Buchanan from Leeds Rhinos and Christine Isaacs from the Lingfield Estate, attendees engaged in an interactive multi-media presentation highlighting the Commission’s key issues of Isolation, Communication and Barriers to overcoming poverty.


The event finished with pledges from each Commissioner about how they intend to continue to tackle the dehumanising effects of poverty in Leeds, and a challenge to attendees to make their own pledges and think how they can work to rehumanise others and be rehumanised themselves.
