I'm a music creator & youth worker currently co-ordinating a youth arts & social action project. My experience in the music industry compliments my youth work as it allows me to share first hand experience with young people and offer my guidance & support in their personal development & career aspirations. I am very passionate about supporting the journey of young aspiring artists & change makers as I understand how difficult it can be to have your voice heard.

I’m Chloe! I've just completed my university degree, during which studying quickly became secondary to my increasing involvement in campaigning. I’m motivated by the racist and sexist violence of neoliberal, neocolonial capitalism that puts profit before people and normalises harm to those it marginalises. I fight for the right of Black and those of ethnic minority, women, disabled people, queer, trans and intersex people, to safety, care and joy. At the heart of my activism is the importance of intersectional and reflective approaches to fighting for liberation so that no one is left behind.
My name is Georgia Wiggin and I am an 18 year old student. My campaign is centred around making the world a better place for QTIPOC (Queer, Trans, Intersex People of Colour). Currently, I am running a Twitter and Instagram account which posts advice, news and other relevant things related to being LGBTQ+ and a person of colour. I have plans to extend into the campaign community!
I believe individuals have the power and potential to shape a better world. I have supported 1000s of young people to do this through social action. In particular I work to ensure that young people from under-represented backgrounds have access to these opportunities, so we can transform who is tackling the most pressing issues in our society, and ensure it is those who are affected by them and understand them. I am passionate about building a diverse Social Impact sector and am currently setting up #POCIMPACT, a community that supports, connects and recognises People of Colour in the sector
I am campaigner for Clean Clothes Campaign, an international network that aims to improve labour rights in the garment industry world-wide. I care deeply about human rights, social justice, and the dangers of the climate crisis. Beyond my work I am therefore also in my spare time active in campaigns for human rights in Belarus and Ukraine, with mounting concerns about the situation in Poland as well. Furthermore, I try to live my life with attention for the environment and am happy if I can contribute to political change by taking part in actions on that subject as well.

I work with children and young people with lived experience to support them to tell their stories and inspire others to change their attitudes and behaviour.

I am a scientist. On 2014, I decided to use my scientific experience in advocating for LGBTQ+ rights in my home country, Egypt, and succeed over the years to produce valuable statistics and reports about that in Arabic and English. Right now I am trying to relaunch my activism from here, UK, in order to support my community back home.
I have seen first hand how mental health stigma can destroy a person and thier family. I want to make sure that through my work and campaigning people learn the importance and severity of mental health issues. We need to work together to heal, live and grow no matter what we go through.
I have been heavily involved in lots of different campaigning, but I see it all as part of the same fight. I organised a big festival of politics and culture called Bristol Transformed. I have been doing a lot of campaigning for the Labour Party, and am currently shortlisted as a councilor candidate. I am engaged in campaigning for Labour for a Green New Deal and have been meeting with environmental activists from Extinction Rebellion, Youth Strike 4 Climate and Friends of the Earth.
I’m most involved in Extinction Rebellion North East but also a member of the Labour Party, Friends of the Earth and Stand Up To Racism.

I grew up in the North East and have a degree in Geography from Royal Holloway University of London.
I'm a survivor activist and dramatherapist, passionate about creating spaces for survivors of childhood sexual abuse to speak out, support each other, and engage in activism. Finding a community of survivors has changed my life, and in my projects and with my PhD research I aim to make this possible for other survivors, especially at a younger age, so that they can know they are not alone. I believe as a society we have a responsibility to ensure that survivors of sexual violence have support and better access to education, healthcare, and full participation in society.
My name is Shahd. I did my master degree in Gender and International Development at University of Warwick. My deep commitment to justice in its various forms drives my campaigning work.

I am a keen environmentalist who works to reduce my own carbon footprint as much as possible. I am also campaigning for the government to take the climate crisis seriously and put in measures to avoid reaching the tipping point. A particular aspect of my campaigning is around climate justice and the disparities between the global north who are polluting the most and the global south who feel the biggest consequences. I also work with young refugees as to how myself and others can best help them to integrate into our city.
I campaigning for counselling and psychotherapy training courses to 'embody' race and racism issues it their training rather than include them as a one of weekend module on equality and diversity which often covers all inequalities. I'd argue that all inequalities need to be embodied in the structure of courses.
I’m an international relations student (doing my bachelor’s degree this summer #fingerscrossed) and I study law too. My passion for knowledge is as strong as my need for social commitment. That’s why despite many responsibilities I decided to join my organization, Akcja Demokraja – first as a volunteer and later as a worker. I’m mostly interested in politics, which I believe is possible to be fair. It is actually need for fairness and inter-human solidarity that keep me busy. If I am able to help other to struggle or hart less, and I have more possibilities to do so, why shouldn’t I?
