Application to be a campaign lead for CYGEN's discriminatory laws campaign
CYGEN, supported by The Royal Commonwealth Society as part of the Equality & Justice Alliance (EJA) programme, is seeking dedicated youth campaign leads who will drive an exciting CYGEN campaign calling upon Commonwealth leaders to reform laws that discriminate against women and girls and LGBT+ people. The campaign will run for six months in the run-up to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Rwanda in June 2020.

There will be a role in this campaign for all members, which will be crucial to it's success however a small number of participants will take the lead and participate in a three-day workshop to develop key messages and a campaign strategy to bring an end to discriminatory laws in the Commonwealth. Participants will then take part in a two-day video shoot, creating a series of short social media videos to promote the campaign and the work of the EJA and CYGEN.

CYGEN is seeking members who are passionate about reforming discriminatory laws and who can commit to driving the campaign at a local, national, regional and international level until CHOGM in Kigali in June 2020.

The campaign workshop will take place from Monday 11th to Friday 15th November.
