Laurie is a Research Analyst at CLASS and the Runnymede Trust. They lead on the ‘race and class’ project, aimed at foregrounding new ways of talking about these issues so that:
- we build solidarity across struggles, sectors and movements
- we are better equipped to tackle structural inequality
Previously, they have worked on Runnymede’s Common Cause Networks, on the SADC Basic Income Grant Campaign for the Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute (Johannesburg) and on a multi-dimensional inequality framework for the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (LSE).
They hold a first class honours undergraduate degree in ‘Social Sciences’ from Sciences Po Paris and a master's in ‘Inequalities and Social Science’ from the LSE.
Laurie is also very passionate about environmental justice from a decolonial perspective, and about the intersection of race, gender and LGBT+ life. For their master’s thesis, they researched place-making as an avenue for empowerment, drawing on a case study of London’s Queer and Trans People of Colour community.
