Raise Your Voices - Poster Resources
We enlisted young people to design some inspirational posters challenging everyone - young or old - to ask the candidates this election how they will improve life for children and young people, should they be elected into government.
A big thank you to Sarah Jane Seddon (18), Zac Naufahu (15) and Emma Blacklock (13) for their unique designs. Why not share them on your social media or print out and pin up somewhere for your whole community to see?
Are you a young person with a RAISE YOUR VOICES design we could use? Please send your poster ideas to this email.
