Effie Jordan


Campaigns officer


Effie is a campaigns officer at Global Justice Now, having first come across the organisation (many years ago) when she was in the throes of moving abroad to work on programmes to combat poverty in Africa. Global Justice Now made her realise to her horror that much of the poverty there existed due to UK international policies. Effie then traded a life in the sunshine for life in the inner city and initially volunteered at Global Justice Now before moving into her current role. Effie has a Master's degree in Development. and is still learning about parenting as the mother of three grown up children. She has also campaigned with the Women’s Environmental Network and on various education issues.

Black History Month series: How can we learn lessons when we only hear a fraction of the story?

29 October 2019

This Black History Month we're focusing on black-led movements and resistance throughout history. How have they shaped our understanding of politics and activism, how do they continue to inspire social movements and activists today? From the Black Jacobins to Black Lives Matter there is a thread of rebellious connection that, as a movement, we must learn from. We must learn the histories that were never taught to us in school, learn about the reality of our own histories and truly understand what solidarity looks like, not just this month but everyday.

This blog is third and final installment on our series this month. Effie Jordan writes about how our movements can learn from the history and impact of 'othering' which is rooted in European imperialism.
