Over the last few years we have been involved with various large scale projects which continue to routinely be in newspapers and used by governmental organisations. Here are some examples:
2016’s big campaign: The Rose Project http://www.yorkvision.co.uk/news/students-plant-rose-to-nip-slavery-in-the-bud/17/03/2017
The Angel Shot Project as well as the Anti-sexual Harassment campaign https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J09wfcX3ZQo
Our abolition group campaign from last year focused on tackling big businesses in the city of York and holding them accountable for their modern slavery statements
