"Shilpa and Otesha folk became friends over their mutual interest in environmental justice and anti-oppression. She joined the board of trustees in 2011 and hopes to support the team as they embed and promote anti-oppression principles in all of Otesha’s work. She works at Friends of the Earth as a campaigner on the Rights and Justice team and also works as a consultant offering training to organisations working towards social and environmental justice. She previously co-founded the Akashi project, working with Black and Minority Ethnic communities on climate change. She leads uplifting group singing sessions and she loves running, cycling, dancing to cheesey Bollywood tunes and food (growing it, buying it, cooking it, eating it)."
