I believe that training spaces are places where real magic and transformation can happen, experiencing it myself while on Training for Change’s 'SuperT', a 19 day training for trainers in Philadelphia, USA. My job is to make sure all our trainings contain that magic! I came to Campaign Bootcamp after 6 years in the international climate movement training and supporting activist groups around the world. When not working with a group I am happiest walking in the hills around Sheffield where I live, out on my bike, or with my head in a book. .
I'm from the North-East and before joining Campaign Bootcamp I worked in operations for youth charities. My job is to get everyone to the right place at the right time with the right stuff doing the right thing. I enjoy cycling, cooking, eating and doing stuff around London that I can't do up north.
I’m a campaigner and organiser involved in work around race, anti-islamophobia, and environmentalism. I’m committed to better understanding and tackling power and privilege in activism; interested in learning all I can about pre-Partition South Asian; making community care a reality; and forever on the quest to be a better organiser. I also love fashion, lipstick, reading, and being by the sea.
I am a London born and based artist, abolitionist and agitator. I am a cultural producer, I make music, write poetry and use creativity to express and process feelings and thoughts. My political organising has spanned various movements including Occupy, Black Lives Matter and various environmental initiatives, I see all social issues as interconnected and organise against them accordingly. My travels, life experiences, encounters and spiritual practices inspire my thoughts and actions, which are anti-colonial.
I'm a disability rights campaigner and have been from the age of 13. I work for a charity managing a network of 700 young disabled campaigners which I absolutely love. We campaign to remove the inequalities faced by disabled people and aim to create a more inclusive society.
I'm a community activist and freelance writer, trainer & facilitator and equality and diversity specialist. I've held a number of strategic roles in the anti-racist, LGBTQI, women's and disability sectors. I co-founded QTIPOC London and am an inaugural member of the Edge Fund. Previous to this I co-founded and directed So We Stand. I grew up and live in Walthamstow, and I'm passionate about film, plays the drums, love avocados and have a penchant for cheesy 90s music.
I am passionate about disability rights and have a strong interest in campaigning and raising awareness for individuals living invisible disabilities. I currently volunteer for Ehlers-Danlos Support UK in Glasgow I have also worked in support services which provides a wide range of services for people who have learning disabilities.
I'm a queer black feminist and somewhat fatigued activist who believes that we need to be having more nuanced conversations about power and privilege in our circles. My campaign background is in gendered violence, sexual health and anti-racism. I work at Bootcamp to ensure that those most in need of Campaign Bootcamp's training and community, can access it, and I also train. I'm interested in drawing, art, witchy things, selfies, massage, artsy films and painting my nails.
I'm the former Director of the Education for Liberation Network, a national education justice network in the US. I helped start the organisation, developing it from an informal listserv of a few hundred people to a national network that connects more than 2,000 through convenings, publications, social media and resource exchanges. Before becoming director, I organised arts and media projects for low-income teens in New York and London. Prior to that I worked for five years as a professional journalist in Washington, DC and London. I live in Hackney with my partner and two children.
