UK Census 2021: “Choose other, Select Jain”
Young Jains is currently helping OneJain to spread awareness about the upcoming Census in 2021, and its importance for the Jain community in the UK. We hosted a Q&A style event on Thursday 14th January, to answer questions from the community. Our thanks are extended to those who attended and have taken an active interest in helping us to promote the campaign thus far.
We were joined by our Community Engagement Officer, Emma Taylor and Stephen Pal, from the Office of National Statistics and Sanjay Jagatia, Community Advisor for the Indian Community, who all made several clarifications on how to fill out the census this year, if we wish to be recognised as Jain.
For those who were unable to join us, we will be hosting another event ahead of Census Day, to make further clarifications. See our upcoming bulletins and social media for more information on this event. Please also visit our Census page on the Young Jains website, which we regularly update with frequently asked questions and answers.
Young Jains Magazine
Young Jains is excited to launch the latest issue of our magazine- Hero: Be the Change, online.
Lockdown brought a lot of disruption to our lives, whilst helping us appreciate all the key workers, who risked their lives to serve the nation. They were our superheroes. Lockdown also gave us an opportunity to slow down, introspect and bring small transformations into our lives so that we could also take steps to becoming heroes.
This edition explores:
– Search for the hero within
– Qualities of a hero
– Some of your lockdown transformations
