Right to Remain is very sad to say good bye to Sundus Abdi, our first ever intern as Campaigns and Communications Assistant. She has successfully completed her internship programme with us – and we are excited to hear that she will soon start her new job at one of the refugee support charities in Birmingham.
Sundus came to Right to Remain last November, just as we were expanding the scale of our legal education work. We were under pressure to disseminate information about our work to hundreds of groups who rely on us and also more widely – about our legal updates, our flagship Knowledge is Power online workshops, our flyers and much more. Sundus used our social media platforms to raise visibility of our work just when it was so needed, often teaching her (much older…) colleagues about the wonderful world of social media.
Sundus also supported our These Walls Must Fall, running mini workshops for our Campaigners on how to use social media, helping them to complete our creative collaboration project with Migrants in Culture and collating their stories. She also interviewed them about their actions, activities and journeys, producing a number of blogs that showcase our wonderful Campaigners’ experiences and strength. And of course, she helped with many of our online and in-person events, with her iconic smile.
It was also fortunate for us that Sundus agreed to contribute several pieces to our ‘In Search of Radical Solidarity’ series, highlighting amazing work some of the grassroots groups we know are doing in solidarity with people who are caught up in this hostile asylum and immigration system.
We wish Sundus very best – and are very honoured to be in this migration justice movement with her.

On reaching the UK, people face a hostile environment. Without help, many will be forcibly sent back to the wars, persecution and misery they have fled.
