All Equal, All Included. With Cllr Hina Bokhari AM and Lord Paul Tyler, party spokesperson on Political and Constitutional Reform
LDER are hosting an exciting Zoom meeting with Cllr Bokhari and Lord Tyler on 12 Oct at 7pm about why equal votes and diversity go hand-in-hand. The online event will include a discussion on key questions like "Will equal votes be likely to improve the diversity of representation in Parliament?", "What can we do as equal votes campaigners to reach out to new, diverse communities?" and "Where next for the campaign?". There will also be time for you to ask questions to our speakers.
Cllr Hina Bokhari AM is a Liberal Democrat, is the first Muslim woman to be elected as a councillor in Merton and one of the first Muslim women to be elected to the London Assembly in 2021. She is a long-time supporter of PR, has campaigned actively with Make Votes Matter and is now an MVM alliance partner. Lord Paul Tyler is the Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Constitutional and Political Reform in the House of Lords and has been actively involved with the campaign for equal votes for many years, including introducing a Constitutional Renewal Bill in the House of Lords in 2009 and convening a cross-party group from within the Joint Committee on the Draft House of Lords Reform Bill to secure majority support for reform.
We want everyone to feel welcome at this and all of our events regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender, age, class, sexual orientation, and physical abilities.
