Interests: Community / Customary Land Rights, Environmental Justice, Livelihoods, Women's Rights
My background is in Refugee Rights and Gender Justice, with a particular focus on community empowerment and grassroots organizing. I currently work with the Economic Justice project within OSJI, where I hope to add a gender justice lens in our ongoing work, as we engage in water justice and other economic justice issues. I have also worked with our Civic Space and National Security teams, lending programmatic support. I want to get more involved and gain more knowledge around Namati's work, as I have seen the close relationship garnered with our own Legal Empowerment team, and I see Legal Empowerment as one of the most sincere bottom-up approaches that needs to be taken in creating change in the human rights field. I would love to learn more about how Namati is engaging with grassroots organizations and how I can further develop my organizing and community empowerment skills as well, always keeping an intersectional lens along the way. I hope to combine my passion of gender justice and refugee rights with that of grassroots organizing and community empowerment, as I see participatory action as one of the key factors in securing the rights for all and implementing sustainable change.
