Assalam aleykum! Hello!
My name is Elizabeth. I’m a young British Muslim and human rights activist. I’ve been passionate about human rights and socio-political issues since discovering Amnesty International when I was at school. I also love discovering other languages and cultures and travelling.
I went on to study languages/translation and human rights at postgraduate level, including some study within Islamic Studies. I converted to Islam whilst in my final year at university.
My main interests include women’s rights, religious/cultural/linguistic rights, minority, refugee and migrant rights and issues surrounding post-colonialism, immigration, multiculturalism and both intercultural and interfaith work.
Voice of Salam (Voice of Peace) was set up in December 2015 as a global platform to raise awareness of and give campaigning advice about a wide range of social, political, human rights, intercultural and interfaith issues.
