Sarah Horton

Marketing & Sales Assistant since September 2019

My role

I support the Business Development & Marketing Manager with the organisation and coordination of Basis Training & Education. I enable the development and delivery of training, conferences & events, venue hire, educational resources, campaigns, fundraising and merchandising. If not keeping on top of our various social media accounts, I’ll be creating promotional materials, or working on building our marketing strategy. I also take part in street outreach.

My background

I’m originally from the Midlands but moved up North for university. I graduated from the University of York in 2018 with a degree in English and History. I then moved to Leeds to do a Masters in Postcolonial Literature and did my thesis on Decriminalising Sex Work in Film and Literature. I also volunteered with Amnesty International throughout my degree and now campaign with different activist groups in Leeds

A little bit personal about me

I’m a big reader and also love swimming and getting out into the countryside but most of my spare time is filled up by protesting with different local groups. I also love animals and am keen for the time I can get my own little place and a dog pal.
