People of Colour Officer

Heleena Pankhurst

Hey, I'm Heleena, your new POC officer. I will work on supporting the incredible initiatives at SOAS that centre the needs and work of Black students and students of colour. My aim is to enable cooperation between different groups working on issues of liberation whilst directing students to the support they need. My role will also consist of applying pressure on the institution to address its racist practices and erasure of POC voices and demands. Our voices, demands and work need to be treated as integral ! So If you see me around, have questions or demands, or just wanna chat, feel to reach out in person or to email me at
