We are concerned by housing, low wages, treatment of migrants, climate change, safety and tackling violence affecting young people on our streets.
We believe by working together we can bring real change to Londoners.
After listening to the needs of hundreds and thousands of Londoners from vastly different backgrounds, London Citizens created a manifesto that we believe can transform our city.
Our people powered manifesto was brought to Sadiq Khan and Shaun Bailey in the 2021 London Assembly where on the 28th of April, over 5,400 community leaders from London Citizens gathered to secure commitments from the next Mayor of London on issues of justice that matter to us.
We were joined by the top two mayoral candidates, Sadiq Khan and Shaun Bailey, who were engaged by people affected by the five priority issues from our London Citizens Manifesto 2021.
The evening proved that organised people can build the power to move ‘the world as it is’ closer to ‘the world as it should be’!
The Assembly was a mix of powerful testimonies, creativity and negotiation with the candidates. In a year where we have been physically distanced from each other, and when so many of our world’s injustices have been laid bare, it was vital to come together in order to win change for our city. It was a moment for people power to insert itself into the often predictable cycles of elections.
