Hi Cameron,

I hope you're doing well! I wanted to drop by our (new!) project platform and check in about how your project is going--how are you doing with identifying the root cause of this injustice? Let me know if you need any help!

I also wanted to let you know about a timeline we have for a UK-specific challenge that's coming up. We'd love to have you involved!

Completion of Understand Phase & Submit Compassionate Insights by 20th July
Submit Project Plan by 17th August
Submit Mini-Grant Application by 31st August
Submit Reflection by 31st October

Let me know if you'd like to know more about the challenge, and if there's anything we can do to help. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Cameron,

I'm a member of the Peace First team! I'm excited that you are addressing underage drinking, which is a very important issue as you identified because it can affect people's health and potentially involve hurt people in the hospital.

I noticed that when you were describing your injustice, in the how affected category, you wrote "tainting the system." I am curious about what you mean by that; are children hurting their body systems by getting into accidents or is there a bigger societal system that is getting affected? I was also wondering how you got the idea to interview the lgbt and argos bike project, did any member in that group experience the effects of underage drinking? I would encourage you to talk to people who have been in a situation where they were underage drinking or saw the effects of it (it may help you understand why it is an injustice!).

I'm excited to see what you have planned. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask! :)

Hi Cameron - You've identified such an important issue, and I'm curious if you've done some more research on the consequences (and causes) of underage drinking and what parts of this you'd like to address. It's an important topic - keep going!

Best,
Meredith
