Bite Back 2030
Bite Back 2030 is a youth-led movement determined to protect health and halve child obesity by 2030. 3.3 million children in the UK are overweight due to a flood of unhealthy food on our high streets, supermarket shelves and school canteens; whilst advertisers spend billions giving junk food a starring role in young people's minds. Built on an ever-growing group of passionate youth activists, Bite Back seeks to redesign the food system to ensure every child has the right to good, quality food and a healthy future, no matter where they live.

Urban Justice Center
Urban Justice Center began its pioneering work in East Harlem, New York. With no funding, it visited soup kitchens, jails and shelters setting up free legal clinics to help the unrepresented. Today UJC is known for incubating progressive programmes and initiatives, helping tens of thousands of people each year on critical social issues from homelessness and discrimination, to seeking asylum or escaping intimate partner violence. It is a platform to support the most vulnerable New Yorkers, create leaders and fuel social change.
