Dami Makinde

"I am the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of We Belong. I began my activism work when I realized I was unable to attend university because of my immigration status. In 2017, I was seconded to the London Mayor’s office as a Policy Advisor to help within their Social Integration Team. I began a Forum to build a bridge between the Mayor and all London migrants. I am an Eisenhower Youth Fellow and have spoken out worldwide against the UK’s hostile environment towards migrants."
