Journey to Justice (JtoJ) aims to inspire and empower people to take action for social justice through learning about human rights movements. We are a voluntary organisation with supporters all over the UK.
We ran a successful pilot of the exhibition in Newcastle-upon-Tyne last year and it’s coming to Sheffield in May this year followed by Sunderland and Tower Hamlets. Then it will travel throughout the UK for many years to come.
Sheffield Interfaith believes this to be a worthwhile project, that can appeal to people of all faiths or none, and is happy to publicise both the exhibition and the request for volunteers to act as attendants.

How should Muslims live in western societies?
