“More than ever we need to take the fight to the Tories and deliver a socialist Labour government that tackles wealth inequality, putting people first.”
By Jess Barnard
As a youth worker I have spent years supporting young people and families experiencing insecure work, devastating cuts to their community and denied a secure home.
More than ever we need to take the fight to the Tories and deliver a socialist Labour government that tackles wealth inequality, putting people first.
We must fight racism, stand for peace, global justice and real action to tackle the climate emergency.
I am standing to ensure our party is led by working class voices who will stand up for the policies we need.
I will be a strong voice for party democracy, accountability, the rights of our brilliant membership and for equality and liberation campaigns.
As Young Labour Chair I have worked relentlessly to champion the voice of young members at one of the toughest moments facing us.
I have lead campaigning actions across my region for years, served as a County Councillor in Norfolk, stood as a Parliamentary Candidate and am a dedicated community activist and organiser.
I am firmly committed to trade unionist and socialist principles, and am proud to be supported by the Centre-Left Grassroots Alliance and Momentum. Please also support Mish Rahman, Gemma Bolton and Yasmine Dar.
