Carla Campillo Masip serves as OEP's Kingian Nonviolence Organizer intern. She is a recent MA graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London, in Human Rights, Culture and Social Justice. Carla is now working in a London-based organization that helps victims of domestic violence. She reflects on the impact that On Earth Peace has made in her life during her internship.
What are the favorite project/s that you worked on?
Being able to have the conversations that created the current Gun Violence campaign has been one of my favourite parts of my time at OEP. We were able to voice our concerns and turn them into a project that involves people from all over the world.
Why are you drawn/applied to On Earth Peace?
I was drawn by OEP's commitment to social and intersectional justice.
How has OEP affected your outlook/future aspirations?
I've now, more than ever, understood the importance of community when striving for social change. OEP and its interns have shown me that no job will be worth it if the community around it is not supportive.
What would you like people to know about OEP and yourself?
I'm currently working at a charity that works with survivors of domestic abuse. I recently finished my MA in Human Rights, Culture and Social Justice from Goldsmiths' University of London. All of this would not have been possible without the tools, the community and the inspiration that OEP has given me.
