Leela works in the campaigns team, and is the lead for our programme on reducing racial disparities in youth justice.
The programme looks across three areas of acute disparity – joint enterprise, remand and drug offences – and will address them through a combination of grassroots, legal, and political work.

She has worked for North Kensington Community Law Centre, Al Haq Centre for Applied International Law, and recently interned at JUSTICE.
