Diversity Is London's Greatest Strength

I was gladdened to hear of the news coming from America on Tuesday night that justice has been done and Derek Chauvin has been convicted of the murder of George Floyd.

The fallout from his brutal crime has been felt across the globe and of course in our own capital.

I hope that the guilty verdicts that he received will be the catalyst for communities to start putting differences aside and to start working together.

London's diversity is its greatest strength. We should all be tackling racism in all of its forms - from prejudice against Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority communities, to Islamophobia and Antisemitism, and to the worrying rise in hate crimes against European citizens.

I hope to work with businesses, voluntary and community organisations as well as the council to help ensure London is a proudly anti-racist city.
