WE Southwark have our candidate for the May council elections CONFIRMED! The wonderful Claire Empson (Southwark WEP co-branch leader) will be attempting to be Southwark's first WEP councillor!
Come along to celebrate with us and find out who you can get involved in the run up to the election!
Here are some words from Claire:
I joined the Women’s Equality Party as a founding member because I didn’t feel represented by my local and national government.
Having lived and worked in East Dulwich for over 15 years, I am both a local business owner and a mother at the heart of this community. I have always done business and politics differently. Women make up more than half of this area but we are not represented equally or fairly in local politics.
I want to create the change I want to see for my children! Throughout my life, I have seen a problem and taken action.
WE will put equality at the top of the agenda. Because equality is better for everyone.
Southwark Council has been held by Labour for 8 years. It’s time for a new perspective and independent voice to hold them to account! I don’t have to toe the party line.
You can count on me to take action on equality, childcare, violence against women and girls, environmental issues, LGBTGI+ issues, housing and the needs of small business owners.
Together let’s change local politics.
Vote for the Women’s Equality Party on 3rd May.
VOTE FOR CLAIRE!
