Project: Empower

» Mozes Salvatore

Founder

Mozes is the Founder of Project: Empower. He established the project as a response to the June 2017 Grenfell Tower fire which caused an unprecedented need for legal services.

Mozes has worked for the Law Centre movement for over five years. He first worked as an Employment and Public Law paralegal at Camden Community Law Centre before moving to North Kensington Law Centre as an Employment Caseworker.

I firmly believe the measure of our compassion lies not only in our services of those on the margins, but in our willingness to see ourselves in kinship with them.

At Project: Empower, Mozes is responsible for overseeing the work of the Employment Division, Public Legal Education Division, the Criminal Defence Division and ensuring that the project complies with regulatory requirements. In his spare time, Mozes sits as Chair of the Centrepoint Parliament, runs various Grenfell outreach projects, holds fundraisers with local businesses to support North Kensington Law Centre, volunteers for the Westminster Student Law Clinic and the British Heart Foundation.

Mozes has an ambitious plan for Project: Empower to turn into a charity offering legal advice, casework and representation to individuals and groups . The goal is to recruit four practising lawyers, specialising in a variety of social welfare law such as Employment, Housing, Welfare Benefits and Immigration and Asylum to be Trustees. The goal is for Project: Empower to become an established charity pioneering community-based legal services which promote rights and equality of opportunity. This will be achieved by taking a unique holistic approach of combining both advice and legal education. Mozes wants Project: Empower to hold power structures to account, while tackling sensitive issues such as trafficking and employment issues concerning migrant domestic workers.

Welcome to Project: Empower.

Our IT person is still busy tinkering about with code, making sure the site is up to scratch.

Although Project: Empower already up and running, our website isn't quite finished yet.

But when it is, expect a revolutionary new chapter to our small, but growing charity project.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
