Victoria Nyanjura recently worked as an aftercare specialist at International Justice Mission in Gulu, Uganda, an organization that transforms justice systems and protects widows from property-grabbing in Northern Uganda. She is a former project assistant for the Gender Justice Department at the Justice and Reconciliation Project, a Ugandan organization that works with war-affected communities. She is a member of the Women’s Advocacy Network, a forum where war-affected women come together to advocate for justice. She also played a significant role in organizing a petition for redress that resulted in the parliament of Uganda unanimously passing a resolution to remedy the plight of victims of Northern Uganda’s conflicts. As a master of global affairs student, Victoria was the recipient of a Thomas D. McCloskey Peace Fellowship.
