Lorna Campbell

As a young woman I always thought the world would evolve into a better place. Unfortunately the evolution that I expected has not materialised . As long as 'isms' continue to be the source of human oppression and robbed opportunities, I will continue to be involved in campaigns.

Leyla Larbi

I'm a campaigner based in Bordeaux, France. I launch campaigns in France but also at the international level. I recently joined SumOfUs but I've already had the opportunity to lead two main campaigns: one for the freedom of information in France and one global targeting a multinational company involved in colonization of Palestine. I'm a political activist from a working class background, and beside my work I also continue to resist intersectional discriminations in French or international struggle groups.

Jake Woodier

I have been involved in a wide variety of campaigns over the best part of the last decade, ranging from free education to environmental protection.

Other passions of mine are sustainable living, climate and social justice.

James Hiwatari

I am a trans, bisexual and intersectional writer and activist. I work for the Equality Network, one of Scotland's LGBTI organisations, and through them I participated in the Equal Marriage and Equal Recognition campaigns. The first, already concluded, aimed to grant marriage rights to same-sex couples. The second, ongoing, aims to protect and improve the rights of trans people in Scottish law. I also want to start an awareness raising campaign about intersectionality and have it included in anti-discrimination law.

I am a young woman who has been broken in pieces a million times, but rise up not only to fight for myself but also for many other women and children out there who are dying in silence. My conscience does not allow me to ignore things that needs change. I vow to die trying and be a change influencer!!

Nicole Williams

I am a mental health campaigner, after experiencing mental ill health from a young age, developing Anorexia Nervosa, not only feeling but seeing the pain mental illness can cause a person, and with the added stigma, discrimination and inequalities that go along with it, I cannot help but do all I can do to create change. Nobody should ever be mistreated, and certainly not because of their mental health, yet so many are.

Judith Massia

I am passionate about Women's Rights, especially women who are not part of the national and international conversation on women's rights. I also like to be involved in the legal procedures used to ensure that these women have access to justice.

Hanna Lindley-Jones

I am passionate about women's rights and gender equality. Having worked for the Safe Abortion Action Fund at IPPF for 5 years, I have learned even more how intrinsic the ability to decide for yourself about your own body is to gender equality.

I am passionate about working with people to advocate in their own countries to change these unjust laws that only harm women and the community at large.

Roslyn Cook

My campaigning for nearly ten years with the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN ) culminated in 2017 with the adoption at the United Nations of a Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), for which ICAN was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. I am now campaigning to raise grassroots awareness and convince national governments to sign and ratify this treaty. With ICAN I am also seeking to inform and demonstrate the interconnectedness of this issue with human rights and social and environmental justice, building alliances to generate the impact urgently needed.

I joined the British army, aged 17, and was eventually injured in an IED blast on an operation in Afghanistan, which led me to leave the military. I am now a member of the voluntary anti-war organization, Veterans For Peace UK. I currently work as a 1 year Quaker peace worker, where I have been placed at the Peace Pledge Union and Global Justice Now. I have mostly campaigned on veterans’ mental health issues, relating to the effects of military training and the age of enlistment (which is 16!)

Emily Zinkin

I’ve been involved in gender pay gap analysis and communications. I plan to use statistical proof to create greater awareness of the issue, and present internal stakeholders with ideas on how to close the gap, collaborating with other groups to hold industry leaders accountable for change. We would like to circulate our ideas and strategy for other groups trying to do similar things, I want to see Parliament further equalise the workplace playing field by introducing more transparency legislation, and for industry to recognise, value and promote agile workers (who are often women).

Aliyah Rawat

I've been involved in activism for the past 6 years, finding my feet in student politics where I delved into anti-racism and LGBT+ activism. My experience helped lead me to my current work, having recently joined Rethink Mental Illness as their Regional Coordinator for Children and Young People's Campaigns in the East of England. Raising awareness of mental health issues is something I care deeply about having had lived experience of mental illnesses for over a decade. I believe reducing stigma and discrimination comes about through increasing understanding in an accessible and inclusive way.

Angeles Reyes

I believe in equality, co-creation and people-advocacy, so I help projects to listen, communicate and create. I'm behind a feminist social enterprise called pink, my arse - my own experiment of creating an "agora" for feminists (men included) to talk and a market to trade with each other, so that the feminist pound is spent consciously in service/product providers who support equality for women. I'm a volunteer at Latin American Women's Aid in Design and support to the Change Makers programme and I support the FiLiA team on a not so regular basis with their twitter account.

Sergio Lopez Figueroa

I am a single parent, pianist and composer developing Humming in Harmony; a social mindfulness project with empathy at the centre, while I work as a music teacher for special needs.

This led me to work for Women’s Aid and my interest for campaigning grew in other areas of activism.
