Your Lib Dems Need You!
Newham, Barking & Dagenham are among the most diverse areas in the country and we want our local party to reflect that amazing mix of people. The Liberal Democrats are fully committed to equality & diversity but sadly, too often the people who comprise our leadership may not reflect our communities fully. We believe that to represent a community best, our party should be made up of members of our diverse communities. You can help us achieve that ambition. There are loads of different ways to get involved including as a member of our party leadership. Get in touch using the form below if you want to be involved!
"Upholding these values of individual and social justice, we reject all prejudice and discrimination based upon race, colour, religion, age, disability, sex or sexual orientation and oppose all forms of entrenched privilege and inequality."
