Sinn Féin MLA praises young people involved building peace and reconciliation

Sinn Féin MLA and Junior Minister Jennifer McCann has praised the young people involved in ‘The Crossing the Bridges Project" who work on building peace and reconciliation in society.

Speaking ahead of the Gala to celebrate the achievements of the young participants the West Belfast MLA said:

“I want to commend all the young people involved in this successful project.  It has provided an opportunity for young people from different traditions and cultural and religious backgrounds to come together to learn about our shared past and reflect on the lessons it can offer us as we work together to build a better future.

“The Crossing Bridges Project clearly shows the way in which young people are at the forefront of improving relations across and between sections of our community. 

“The relationships that are built through initiatives such as this help lay the foundations for a more just and united society."
