Campaign Bootcamp

We have secured some new scholarships for our last Bootcamp of the year in October! The team are really proud of our new Housing Justice Scholarships, open to grassroots activists tackling housing inequality in the UK.

The deadline is 9am on Tuesday 22nd August - that's just two weeks away!

Are you a housing activist who wants to learn how to run powerful campaigns?
Then now is the time to get writing your application - there are only two weeks left until the deadline.

Or maybe you know someone who is?
A group fighting for change in their community that needs support?
An activist that needs a confidence boost?
A campaigner living far from a lively activist scene?

Bootcamp 11 will run from Monday 16th October - Saturday 21st October 2017.

Winnie

Winnie Mandela is one of the most misunderstood and intriguingly powerful contemporary female political figures. As her husband Nelson Mandela served out his sentence in prison, Winnie took centre stage before the world as the face of the African National Congress. She became an icon for an adoring but fickle public that first cast her as the Mother of the Nation, and then cast her down as a sinner.
