JRCT welcomes three new committee members to advise on grant-making

We're pleased to have welcomed three committee members to JRCT whose expertise and experience will help guide our grant-making.

Kavian Kulasabanathan and Tanzil Chowdhury have joined our Rights and Justice committee and Nora Ziegler has joined our Peace and Security committee as expert advisors ('co-optees'). 

Kavian (pictured below, left) is an Eezha-Tamil physician with a focus on structural violence as a determinant of poor health. He is especially interested in uses of the collective imagination, community-led models of care and place-making in journeying toward liberated futures for all.

Tanzil (pictured below, centre) is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Public Law and the co-director for the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context at Queen Mary University of London. He was the co-founder of the Northern Police Monitoring Project and helped set up the Greater Manchester Law Centre.

Nora (pictured below, right) was a member of the London Catholic Worker for many years, living and working in a house of hospitality for migrants, and organising actions and campaigns against militarism and borders. She continues to be involved in grassroots mutual aid, and writes about power dynamics in grassroots groups, radical hospitality, and diversity of tactics. 

Grant-making committees at JRCT are made up of trustees, staff and co-optees. JRCT currently has 25 co-optees.
