Anti-Racism Officer

Tawsin Ahmed

My name is Tawsin Ahmed and I’m your anti-racism officer. My main aims as the anti-racism officer of SOAS are to fearlessly address and tackle ALL forms of racism and discrimination within SOAS and to put my HEART and SOUL into fighting for the rights of EVERY ethnic and religious group in SOAS and help create an environment where every student feels that their voice is just as loud as every other voice in the university.

Here are some of my more specific goals which I hope to achieve during my term as anti-racism officer of SOAS:

To establish hate crime reporting centres within SOAS including a hate crime reporting link on the SU website.

To establish a MULTIFAITH committee through which I will tackle ALL forms of religious discrimination such as Anti-Semitism and Islam phobia

To work with a variety of cultural and religious societies throughout SOAS as well as the multi faith committee in order to organise various anti-racism and cultural exchange events addressing different types of racism.

To give my full support to anti-racism campaigns within SOAS and to work with other branches within the SU such as the POC officer in order to combat all forms of Racism within the University

To help to fund scholarships for refugees by organising fundraising events in and around the university

As well as striving to destroy racism at SOAS, I will also work with student unions in other universities in order to support and help create anti-racism campaigns and fight racism on a much bigger scale.
