In this TEDx talk, Donna Murray-Turner, community leader and activist challenges outdated thinking towards inequality and underserved communities. She dares to listen, challenge and consider how much we are willing to surrender of ourselves in order that we can collectively work towards real change, towards a truly equitable society. With thanks to Love Language for providing BSL interpretation. Donna Murray-Turner is the polar opposite of a bystander. She is involved. Whether that’s through advising New Scotland Yard (she sits on four advisory forums), or running ANOS (Another Night of Sisterhood) the community group she founded, chairing the Trustee Board of a local school, or chairing Croydon’s Safer Neighbourhood Board – she is leading change at every level.
Donna has a degree in child development, and works with London’s City Hall on reducing violence against women and girls. She is currently researching community engagement and the role of place in public trust and confidence in the police. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
