Ahead of inequality awareness day on 18  January, the Carlisle Equality Group are running an inequality awareness event in Carlisle City centre this Saturday.

Major social problems such as the income gap, gender inequality, health care, and social class will be up for discussion on the stand.

The group was convened by Professor Kaz Stuart from the University of Cumbria and Adrienne Gill from the Carlisle One World Centre and is a collaborative and cooperative endeavour.
