Jade is an experienced, subversive development practitioner who works alongside people with lived experience of structural and social disadvantage to codesign novel interventions aimed at transforming harm and building collective power.

Their work is informed by their own lived experience and grounded in a strong commitment to harm reduction and decarceration.
