Some of the same YPA people saw Kate Pickett again on Friday 31 January at the Priory Street Centre in York where she delivered a different but equally compelling talk to a big room full of people for the ‘Truth, Lies and The Spirit Level’ day conference http://www.comehear.org/further-resources.html.
Many citizens of York and Yorkshire are obviously seeing that we need to challenge the divisions within society, and bring about a much more equal one. We hope to see them all on the walls and streets of York on the 8th March telling attendees to the Lib-Dem conference what we think of their coalition for the rich and wealthy.
