Campaign: Stopping negative stereotypes of young shoppers

We think there is prejudice out there when it comes to young shoppers and the way we're viewed by many retailers.

 

We're seen as being poor and always wanting to cause trouble, which is what we want to change.

 

There definitely needs to be a common understanding between retailers and young people for any change to happen.

 

We all should be treated the same and not judged because of how old we are or how we look.

 

Fixers have given us the opportunity to create window stickers to be displayed in the city’s most ‘youth friendly’ stores.

 

This is something we believe in, and we're not going to waste it.

Here are a list a Fixers helping me with my Fix:
