Two exciting training sessions took place in Birmingham in February. Social media training and a unique opportunity to learn from the BBC.
Social Media training
Not a day goes by without a negative story about migrants and it is important to have a counter voice to this.
The social media training involved understanding how to challenge the negative coverage not just from negative stories but also on the comments pages on facebook, twitter and news outlets.
Finding the stories, using memes facts and humour.

Special BBC training session
The in depth training session involved 'Telling your Story'. How to use your voice effectively. The training was delivered by Jenny Mitchell, BBC change manager and executive coach and Marya Burgess, documentaries producer and series producer for The Listening Project at BBC Radio.
Jenny and Mary focused on how to tell your story in a powerful and impactful way, and how to speak with confidence in an interview.
