London Citizens 2021 Manifesto

Citizens UK: the UK’s biggest, most diverse, and most effective people-powered alliance.
We’re working together to make change on the issues that matter, from campaigning for zebra crossings on dangerous roads, to reforming the immigration system, to the Living Wage campaign.

We’re shifting the balance of power, bringing people together across their differences, to find common ground and win change.

This manifesto has not been created by experts in think-tanks or political-masterminds, but by hundreds and thousands of everyday Londoners and local organisations.

We believe that this manifesto and working together to make it happen can bring real change to Londoners. That’s why we want you to back it. Together we can transform our city.
