Ginger Gorman

Ginger Gorman

Ginger Gorman is a fearless and multi award-winning social justice journalist. She has an innate ability to connect and communicate with some of the most interesting and marginalised people in our community. Ginger works hard to translate those untold stories into powerful journalism and is author of the best-selling book Troll Hunting.
Jamil Jivani

Jamil Jivani

Jamil Jivani was raised in Toronto with an absent father and a distrust of the police which saw him heading towards a life of crime. He is now a corporate lawyer and a visiting professor at Toronto’s Osgoode Hall Law School focussing on issues affecting youth, immigrants and low-income families.
Mark Isaacs

Mark Isaacs

Mark is a writer, an author, a researcher and a community worker. His first book, The Undesirables: Inside Nauru (Hardie Grant, 2014), is an account of his work with asylum seekers in Nauru, one of Australia’s notorious offshore detention centres. His second book, Nauru Burning (Editia, 2016), follows up The Undesirables with an investigative report on human rights abuses on Nauru. In 2017, Mark conducted an investigation into deportations to Afghanistan with the Edmund Rice Centre. The published report, titled 'Responsibility to Protect', paved the way for Mark's later writings in Afghanistan.

Mark’s third book, The Kabul Peace House (Hardie Grant, 2019) is about a community of peace activists in Afghanistan. Mark is president of Sydney PEN, an affiliate of PEN International, a worldwide association of writers which defends freedom of expression and campaigns on behalf of writers who have been silenced by persecution or imprisonment. He continues to write freelance while studying a Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Technology, Sydney. His research will focus on human migration in the Asia-Pacific region.
