Statement to voters

Emma is a Junior Doctor with an academic interest in sexual health. She grew up in Tottenham in the 80s and 90s. After several years working for the NHS in various parts of England and Scotland, she is a resident in Tottenham Hale, where she lives with her family.

She is standing as a Green Party candidiate because she believes that their urgent call for action on the Climate Emergency is missing from UK politics. Emma is committed to environmental causes both locally and globally. She is a member of the Stonebridge Lock Coalition. She can regularly be found by the River Lea and on Tottenham Marshes, volunteering with Stonebridge in their conservation and environmental and habitat improvement work.

Emma is mixed race, grew up in a multicultural community and has extensive experience of being a member of multinational NHS teams. As such she believes that the current government’s ‘hostile environment’ is one of its most damaging and dehumanising policies. She is a member of ‘Docs Not Cops’- a group of healthcare workers who work to challenge the hostile environment within the NHS. She believes that cultural diversity makes the UK stronger and that wherever possible we should foster good, co-operative links with the rest of the world. This includes remaining a member of the European Union. As a member of the Green Party she has campaigned for a People’s Vote to allow us all to have a final, democratic say on Brexit.

Emma is currently studying towards a postgraduate degree in reproductive and sexual health research. She regularly works for Sexplain UK, a social enterprise that provides inclusive sex and relationship education programmes for school children. She is a passionate advocate of honest and open dialogue with young people, to empower them in making decisions about their own lives and engaging in wider society.

This statement was added by Emma Chan, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
