DELEGATES from Huddersfield were attending a young people's interfaith event in Leeds today.
More than 100 people from a variety of faith backgrounds are to meet at Leeds University for the "Faith2Faith" event.
The conference for 16 to 25 year olds aims to share their experiences of discrimination and injustice, celebrate their faith and ensure their voices are heard. The event will be chaired by Kiran Bali, 28, spokesperson for the young people from the Yorkshire and Humber Faiths Forum.
Kiran was appointed as a Hindu member of the forum last year.
She is an active community volunteer in Huddersfield, the town's youngest JP and chair of the Kirklees Interfaith Forum. She is also one of the youngest ever Ambassadors for World Peace.
She said: "By creating platforms for young people to discuss views we encourage their direct contribution to the agendas of democracy, citizenship and social inclusion.
"The Faith2Faith Conference is a vital initiative which will provide a platform to air their views and challenge some myths and stereotypes."
A range of workshops will look at ways to tackle discrimination positively through creativity and multi-media techniques, working with the media, dialogue and partnership.
Speaker Professor Paul Weller from the Multi-faith Centre at Derby University will provide a keynote speech on the nature of discrimination and injustice.
