The organisation takes its name from that of well-known journalist, editor and political activist who made important contributions to the movement for justice and equality in Britain and the USA.

“Her contributions, her involvement in the liberation struggles made her name widely known in the Caribbean and with organisations working directly for the liberation of peoples in Africa, Asia and Latin America. She understood the double oppression of women and the triple oppression of black women and struggled for the rights and liberation of all women”.

From ‘I Think of My Mother: Notes on the Life and Times of Claudia Jones’, B. Johnson of Karia Press (1985).
