I stand up for students in need. I offer a helping hand to students who want to apply for scholarships in order to get education. I stand up for my own rights as a migrant and for those in the same situation as me. I'm based in Coventry and campaign with CARAG (Coventry Asylum and Refugee Group).
Loraine received a Scholarship for Campaigners of Colour funded by Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust. This scholarship is specifically for campaigners living outside of London.
I am a keen campaigner on equality for all. I am currently campaigning on Community Land Trust housing in Lambeth and it is awesome! I also enjoy enjoy playing a range of sports and performing spoken word. I care about housing in the area I grew up in - a lot of young people my age can’t imagine ever being able to afford to buy or rent a place.

Etzali received a Scholarship for Anti-Racist/Anti-Xenophobic campaigners funded by the Open Society Foundation.
I believe that all children should have free access to education and am passionate about reading and literacy. For the last 2 years I was involved in local community campaigning to Save Barnet Libraries from closing, and have also been involved in the national campaign against library closures across the UK. I am campaigning against cuts to state school funding, as this will lead to further barriers to learning for those most vulnerable and cause deeper divisions in society. As a horticulturist I also care passionately about sustainability and environmental issues.
Rami receives a Scholarship for Campaigners of Colour funded by Action Aid.
I'm an environmental and trans rights activist based in the North of England. I'm passionate about understanding climate and queerness. During the day, I study horticulture and run a business training organisations in transgender awareness and inclusion. In my spare hours, I facilitate the trans body positivity art project 'You Look Nice', volunteer with Leeds Tidal and work on campaigns resisting fracking in West and North Yorkshire.
I'm a trade union activist in London working in hospitality trying to improve conditions at work. The issues I give the most attention to revolve around housing, policing, gendered and racial oppression, as well as workplace activism. I try to include all of these kinds of activism in my workplace, as I feel the most effective approach to building working class and migrant based power is one that recognises how each issue affects the other.
Nilufer received a Scholarship for Campaigners challenging Corporate Power funded by SumOfUs
I am an English and Creative writing student and have been campaigning for the past four years. I campaign against the demolition of social housing in my local area of West Kensington and Gibbs Green, and also campaign for minorities, specifically the Somali community. This campaigning involves several projects like ESOL and domestic violence, where community members might not be able to access mainstream services without grassroots organisations like the one I currently volunteer at.

I have been involved in raising awareness about the similarities that exist between the different faith groups within the city of Bradford for over 20 years. Through the vehicle of the Bradford Concord Interfaith Society, regular meetings, talks and discussions are held. There is opportunity for the various faith communities (including those of no religion) to provide an open dialogue / debate in order to promote understanding and co-operation.
