Special thanks to our partner @uniwestminster for the connections that made this possible.Our delegates made sure to bring their #hardhats for our community day in Caledonian Park on June 12. This was a chance for community members to meet our delegates and for local politicians, advocates, and #tradeswomen to share the importance of #womeninconstructiontrades and the opportunities at the Holloway prison project presents for the community of #islingtonToday we had the immense honor of being the final members of the public to go inside the Holloway Womens Prison. We take seriously the responsibility of honoring the legacy of human rights abuses, and political agitation that occurred here. We hope that we can come back to #islington in the future and visit a #womensbuilding on this site.We’re live-streaming our best practices presentation right now! Live from @uniwestminster .
