Executive Director, The 4Front Project

Temi is Executive Director of The 4Front Project, a member-led youth organization that empowers young people and communities to fight for justice, peace, and freedom. the 4Front Project has pioneered an approach that empowers those most directly harmed by violence and the criminal justice system to be at the forefront of a grassroots movement for change. Its youth activists use transformative justice principles to reimagine what peace, safety and justice can look like in the UK. In her work, Temi has supported the development of the Youth Violence Commission, a cross-party governmental commission launched in 2017 to examine the root causes of youth violence in England, Scotland and Wales, and provided expert evidence to various government committees on institutional racism in policing. She strongly believes that young people who have experienced violence and the criminal justice system require holistic support to heal and thrive.
