One of Britain’s most well-known Black Lives Matter activists is fighting for her life in a hospital after being shot in the head at a London house party.

Sasha Johnson, 27, became a familiar face as an organizer and speaker at the anti-racism demonstrations that spread from the United States to Britain last summer.

The political group she co-founded, the Taking the Initiative Party, said in a statement that Johnson was shot early Sunday morning, and said the attack came after “numerous death threats” against her—although police say they have no evidence of a credible threat.

“Sasha has always been actively fighting for Black people and the injustices that surround the Black community, as well as being both a member of BLM and a member of Taking the Initiative Party’s Executive Leadership Committee,” said the TTIP statement. “Sasha is also a mother of three and a strong, powerful voice for our people and our community.”
