Melissa Céspedes del Sur (South England and Wales)

I’m a South American community organiser and activist based in south London. I’ve been active in anti-racist and feminist organising, also organising with local communities around housing and domestic violence issues. My work is rooted in decolonial and anti-capitalist politics, and you’re likely to find me in a meeting or having a dance. Please get in touch if you’re based in London, South England, or Wales.

Hannah Ross (North England, Scotland and Ireland)

I’m an anti-capitalist organiser based in Manchester, primarily focused on disability activism following the social model of disability. By extension I have been involved with anti-austerity and housing activism, supporting young disabled people’s rights and challenging oppressive healthcare structures. I care deeply about how disablement interacts with other marginalised identities. My favourite place to be is dancing at my home away from home, Partisan Collective.

I hope my background will inform all the work I do at Edge Fund. Please get in touch to chat about how Edge Fund can support your organising in Northern England, Scotland and Ireland.
