Peckham Votes Yes to Launching Peckham Citizens

On Thursday 20th November, 94 people from 17 institutions across Peckham came together at Rye Lane Baptist Chapel, on Rye Lane, for the Peckham Citizens Commissioning Assembly. The group unanimously voted to work towards founding a formal alliance of civic institutions in Peckham, called Peckham Citizens. The alliance will work together to tackle social injustices throughout the local area, putting people in Peckham at the forefront of making their neighbourhood a fairer and better place for all.

Paul Collier of Copleston Church and Community Centre and Fran Botley of Southwark Primary Free School - also marked the start of 1,000 Voices, a listening campaign to talk and listen to 1,000 people in Peckham about the challenges people face in the local area.
