Nisa Nashim brings the Jewish and Muslim communities together to inspire and drive positive change, lead by women all around the UK. This includes, but is not limited to, challenging anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim hatred. Laura is co-founder.
The Alliance exists to bring together and represent Jewish women from all backgrounds to discuss and act upon matters which affect them, the Jewish and also to contribute to the wider community. Laura is co-chair.
Each year on Holocaust Memorial Day, people come together from all backgrounds to learn lessons from the past. On HMD we honour the experiences of people affected by the Holocaust and other genocides, and challenge ourselves to work for a safer, better future. HMDT was founded by and is largely funded by government and is the charity which delivers thousands of HMD events. Laura chairs the board of trustees.
Mitzvah Day brings people together, now in 30 countries across the world, through Jewish led social action, galvanising volunteers to give their time, not their money, to make a difference to local charities. This focusses on Mitzvah Day itself but also on small acts of kindness at any time, as Every Mitzvah Matters. Laura is founder and chair.
Pause for Thought features different contributors from a variety of faiths each day on Radio 2. Laura is a regular contributor on the Zoe Ball show.
