Local Green Party: Leicester Green Party
Nominators: Chris Williams and Mags Lewis
(both from Leicester Green Party)
I’m applying for an open place in the Greens of Colour Committee with the aim of helping the Green Party work on reducing racial prejudice in both the UK and importantly everyday life as part of the GoC Committee.
Having recently represented the Green Party in the May General Election as one of the many BAME candidates, I was shocked at how under represented the BAME community is in mainstream politics. I was however immensely proud to be able to inform voters that we are the only party that has a Deputy Leader from the BAME community. Not only to me; but to the many I spoke too, this echoed progress.
This is a progress I want to expose and equally prove that race is not a factor that decides how intelligent, powerful, or poor someone should be. The world would most definitely be a better place if we simply recognised that we must all work together.
