Stand Up for What Matters
DONATE TODAY for a stronger Green voice as we seek to get councilors elected in the Local Council Elections 2018. In South Woodford, Hatch Lane , Leytonstone, High Street, and many more wards, right across Waltham Forest and Redbridge, we are standing up for local residents to tackle the issues that matter most to them.
As Green Party councillors we would give a voice to residents, provide fresh ideas for the boroughs, and hold the councils to account – as our London Assembly members Sian Berry and Caroline Russell have done with Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, and Green Party councillors across London have been doing against Labour-run councils.
Across our two boroughs we have lots of hard working candidates. In South Woodford, our candidates Lee Burkwood, Ashley Gunstock and Barry Cooper have been working hard, challenging the council on social cuts, littering, and more. Conversations on the doorstep are positive, and there's a good chance we could have a Green councillor in Redbridge. In Hatch Lane, we have Mick Holloway, Rebecca Redwood and Rosie Green, who've fought against library closures. Those are just a handful of examples.
You can find out more about all our candidates on our candidates microsite here: http://wfrgreenparty.org.uk/local-elections-2018/
It is essential to see the links between different issues; air quality, traffic control, housing, poverty and health are intertwined. This is called ‘holistic’ (or more simply, ‘joined-up’ thinking), which is what the Green Party aims to supply. Other parties may have adopted a few ‘green’ policies, but only the Green Party puts the environment at the heart of its manifesto.
All of our money comes from membership and individual donations like yours. There are no big companies, nobody bankrolling us - just a heap of brilliant, hard-working volunteers including all our amazing candidates. We are all putting the hours in because we believe in better.
Please donate to our campaign today. Any small anount will help towards our goal. However, if you aren't able to donate, please consider sharing this campaign on Facebook, Twitter, or by email and help us reach as many people as possible.
