Hello. My name is Katherine Wall. I am a PhD student at the University of Bristol exploring the relationship between land and racial justice in England. I am interested in uncovering the interconnected histories of land and racial injustice; desires and imaginings of a more just future; and questions of what can be done in the present that takes into account these histories and builds towards reparative futures.
I am also a social movement facilitator with Resist+Renew and Organising for Change. In these roles, I work with the climate justice movement to build anti-racist practice drawing on the wisdom of Ijeoma Oluo, who said:
‘The beauty of anti-racism is that you don’t have to pretend to be free of racism to be an anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward…’
