Statement to voters

I'm currently on the London Young Greens Executive Committee and am a Croydon Green Party member.

Full statement



Diversity and representation are important to me, and so I think supporting and giving a platform to issues specifically relating to diversity is of great importance. For me, dismantling systems that oppress people in order to create an equal society, free from systemic inequalities would be an ideal. In addition, I have been doing work with (ex-)prisoners; thus, this is a specific systemic issue that I am passionate about.

My ward area also covers the Regina Road flats, which featured on national television earlier this year due to the flooding and mould running through them – long-standing problems and serious risks of causing ill-health which were ignored by council officials and the political leadership.

I am thrilled to be on the Greens of Colour committee and will be working to collaborate with organisations working on issues that align with our policies & campaign ideas. A student activist, I've established a campaign for migrant justice at King’s College London, while also setting up a local covid mutual-aid group last year.

I believe that Croydon needs a new Green approach. From affordable housing that’s fit to live in and fighting cuts to the public services, to helping ensure bins are collected and fly-tips are cleared, every act of service helps to create a more welcoming community.

I will fight to save the services we all rely on and work to create an even better future for the next generation.
