Not A Compliment
2016: Campaign Manager
Approached directly by Change/org to run this campaign, which sought to extend Hate Crime laws to cover gendered harassment. The motivation and idea for this campaign follows in the footsteps of Nottinghamshire Police Force who led the way and announced they had extended hate crime legislation to cover misogyny.

#ISeeTara
2015: Campaign Manager
Tara Hudson, a trans woman who has lived her entire adult life as a woman, was sent to a male prison after admitting assault. The #ISeeTara campaign began as an online petition (which garnered 146,000 signatures) but quickly grew into organised protests, letter-writing campaigns, and more. It gained worldwide media attention, and successfully lobbied for Tara to be moved to women’s prison within just 4 days of the campaign launch.
