Hi! My name is Hannah and I live in Carlisle, Cumbria. I’m standing to be your Northern Representative for an empowered, campaigning and socialist Young Labour.
Young people need a transformational Labour government that will enact an irreversible shift in wealth and power to working people. As a Young Labour branch chair and UNITE branch officer, I know there are huge gaps in youth presence in our CLPs, councils and trade unions. Young people join the Labour Party to fight for socialist policies like a £15 minimum wage and Palestinian liberation, but are all too often put off by the hostility from senior members who can’t handle the radical politics of our generation.
That’s why we need socialist Young Labour councillors and representatives in power. I will work with socialist councillors in our region to create policy platforms for young members to stand on, lead political education sessions to empower young people in their communities and host guest speakers from the front-lines of industrial action to strengthen connections with Northern TUCs and fight for working class liberation.
I’m proud to be standing with the support of Momentum and trade unionists to fight for a socialist future.
