I am Co-Leader of the Islington branch and the Equal Education Movement Builder on the Policy Committee. I joined the party last year and I have always been involved in my community.
I have campaigned actively in my area on a range of issues from education budgets to supporting my local nursery going through restructuring. I organise regular community events and I have fought for three years to have a zebra crossing installed locally. Joining WEP was the logical next step in my activism as I realised that for the other parties, women’s issues were never central.
I presented two motions at last Conference, on the Settled Status for EU citizens and on the tied-visa for Migrant Domestic Workers. As a French/Lebanese and recent British citizen, I want to continue to live in a city energised by immigration.
Since joining, I have supported three campaigns (Islington, Lewisham and Hackney) and talked to a lot of voters, I know there are topics that are important to Londoners: the impact of austerity and safety. Both are linked and WE have the amazing policies to make change happen in London.
I can’t wait for this campaign to start: WE will get someone elected!
