Hi everyone, I'm Ella (she/her) and I'm your campaigns officer. This year my role will mainly be supporting existing campaigns on campus. In particular, am working with Preventing Prevent to challenge the uni's compliance with the discriminatory Prevent agenda and raise awareness of how it impacts students. I am also supporting Justice For Workers in continuing to hold the university to account for its treatment of the cleaning staff and ensuring safe and dignified working conditions for them - their labour is essential to the functioning of the school, especially during a pandemic! I am also working with Trans* Dignity at SOAS to address issues faced by trans and nonbinary students at SOAS, particularly focusing on the provision of counselling and mental health services for trans and non-binary students. Please get in touch if you have any questions about campaigns or getting involved - no prior knowledge or experience is needed, just a desire to build communities that care about each other!
