Clifton Johnson
Clifton has been working within the Nottingham community for the last 25 years, dealing with issues of discrimination and disadvantage. To date, he continues to advocate for people with regard to legal issues. Clifton`s work revolves around the community, mentoring, supporting and motivating people of all ages. Throughout the years, he has been raising aspirations, educating younger generations and sharing knowledge and experience with his community. When talking about his reasons for being active in his community, Clifton cites his background as his main motivation: `Where I come from, I know what it`s like with no support and resources, so I want to ensure that the wider community has access, information and support. He therefore considers that in order to develop and solve their issues, communities and individuals need to become more responsible, outspoken and socially aware in order to take advantage of every opportunity they encounter.
