Esther Portal
Esther Stanford-Xosei is an internationally acclaimed Reparationist, Jurisconsult, dynamic community advocate and radio Broadcaster.

An experienced scholar-activist, grounded thinker and eloquent spokeswoman, she is considered to be a path-breaker, who has charted new grounds in the theory and practice of reparations. Raised up for such a time as this, Esther is recognised for making a significant and tangible contribution to the Global Pan-African Reparations Movement.

Esther serves as the Co-Vice Chair of the Pan-African Reparations Coalition in Europe (PARCOE). On behalf of PARCOE, Esther is a Broadcaster on Britain’s first and only licensed African community radio station, Voice of Africa Radio.

She is a notable example of the role and prominence that African women with Caribbean heritage continue to play in global justice movements. A tireless and dedicated community organiser, this courageous yet eloquent, truth-seeker, crusader for justice and new abolitionist exemplifies a life dedicated to unflinching community service with integrity.
