Tahmid Islam

Tahmid is a community organiser with Citizens UK based in London. His desire is to see people who feel marginalised and of minority backgrounds recognising their own power and the ability to make a change. Community organizing is an effective way to ensure that people with lived experience are the face of justice and are building a different, fairer world. As someone who is from marginalized community and experience, Tahmid understands how marginalized people can feel hopeless and powerless. However he believes that collective work can solve big problems and that community organizing is an important tool in effectively developing and building power of marginalised people. In essence, not doing for people but supporting them to take own lead. Tahmid recognises the benefits and motivation when small battles are won on issues that matter to marginalized people and wants to support the continued winning change for all of us.
