Another episode, another incredible lineup of guests to talk about the issues that matter most to our generation. This is Youth Rising by NCS, the podcast for young people, made by young people. This week we’re asking the question: what’s next for the anti-racism movement? To help us answer are activist and influencer Munroe Bergdorf and author and activist Patrick Hutchinson.
Through activism, social media and a growing social consciousness we are more aware than ever of all the types of racism that still exist and that need to be addressed and discussed – but are also able to recognise positive changes and celebrate all different backgrounds and races.
Later we’re joined by comedian and creator of BBC Three’s Muzlamic, Aatif Nawaz, who chats to us about challenging racism in the media and how he uses his comedy to tackle social justice.

Show racism the red card, this is the UK's leading anti-racism educational charity.
We’d also recommend The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, which works with 13-30-year-olds in the UK who come from disadvantaged backgrounds,with the aim of inspiring and enabling them to succeed in the career of their choice.
When it comes to mental health we’d suggest Black Minds Matter UK, a non-profit organisation for people aged 13- 25. They’re passionate about change that will bring about a more equal and just society for all.
Lastly check out Stand Against Racism & Inequality, a UK charity that provides support for victims of any type of hate crime. From racism and homophobia to sexism and ageism.
As always make sure you head to our show notes for more information about how we can ALL help.
