Mworozi Patricia – Economic Justice and Climate Action Programme Intern

I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are different from my own – Audre Lorde

Mworozi Patricia has a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University, School of Law. She is a feminist and aspiring academic who is passionate about abolition and decolonization as a means to liberate African people who have been and continue to be harmed by colonialism in all its manifestations. She hopes to use her degree in human rights work, in defense of marginalized and minoritized groups, and to agitate for the political, economic, and sexual liberation of women and gender-diverse persons in Africa and the world over. She believes in community organizing through a feminist lens to effect positive change, and placing women and gender relations at the center of collective action. Patricia is currently interning at AMwA in the Economic Justice and Climate Action Programme. Prior to this, she was part of the pilot Transactional Law Clinic of Makerere University School of Law whose objective is to train law students in areas of human rights and corporate and commercial law, as well as provide commercial legal services to small businesses, start-ups, vulnerable and other disadvantaged groups hence raising their consciousness about economic justice issues.
