I am delighted that the current Officers for the Women’s; Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT); Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and Disability caucuses are all pleased with the work I have done in helping to wider representation and fight discrimination within London Young Labour, and want to work with me in the future.
If elected Chair, I will ensure our liberation caucuses are at the heart of what we do as London Young Labour, not just an added extra. I will work with each caucus to ensure we are confronting issues affecting our under-represented members, and offer assistance on their respective outreach projects.
Our current Under 19s Officer and Anti Racism Officer have also lent their support, and while not liberation positions, our Under 19s section works hard to ensure our events and campaigns are accessible to those who face disadvantages in getting involved in the Labour Party, be it because of age, school commitments or lack of connections. Anti Racism plays an important part in strengthening LYL's work in our communities in challenging discrimination and fighting fascism. I look forward to continuing my work with the Under 19s and Anti Racism reps on the committee.
