Annie Hoey

Vice-president for Equality and Citizenship with the Union of Students in Ireland (USI). I currently work in the field of human rights advocacy within the student movement. I have specialised in campaigning for LGBT*Q rights, especially in the area of gender recognition and marriage equality. My current role involves representing and lobbying on behalf of students who are marginalised or undermined by society. I advocate for equity of access to higher education, and fervently believe that age, sex, social status, ethnicity or socio-economic background should not be a barrier to education.
