The Bloody Sunday Trust's vision is to promote human rights, conflict transformation and understanding, and over the years we have organised and supported many memorable events highlighting these very subjects.

Through annual lectures, exhibitions, campaigns, debates and lively discussion, the Trust endeavours to inform, educate and inspire others locally, nationally and internationally.
