H.O.P.E – Nominee – 2020

H.O.P.E. was founded by Meena Kumari in 2008 to provide consultancy and training on violence against women. The group has played an important role in co-ordinating a specifically black, Asian and minority ethnic women-focused response to the increase in domestic violence during the lockdown. The regular meetings they host over zoom are attended by numerous key politicians, academics, activists and women’s sector practitioners. 

Inspired by the women present at these meetings, Meena has organised with other women activists and artists to create the #blackinDA #12Women #25Women digital art project.
