Raising funds for the campaign to elect Ireland's first out transgender councillor in May 2023!

by Ash Jones in Belfast, United Kingdom

Hi! My name is Ash (she/her/ash/aer) and on May 18th, I'll be standing for election to Belfast City Council.

If successful, I will be the first openly transgender elected representative on the island of Ireland.

Can you be part of history by chipping in now and being part of making this happen?

At a time of increased hostility towards trans people, both from the media and governments internationally, it's more important than ever to have trans people in positions of prominence, making decisions and putting forward our narratives in our own terms. I believe that my election would be a powerful statement that Belfast and Ireland are standing up against transphobia and bigotry.

If elected, I want to fight for public services for the most vulnerable by establishing community energy power, improving public transport, and giving people access to nature, in order to make my city a greener, cleaner and fairer place to live.

Elections aren't cheap, and the Green Party doesn’t have the backing of big business or ultra-wealthy donors. This Crowdfunder aims to recoup some of the costs associated with running my campaign. Please consider giving what you can.

If you're not in a position to donate, please consider sharing this page! If you'd like to get involved on the ground with the campaign to elect me, you can sign up to volunteer here: https://www.greenpartyni.org/westbelfast

Thank you so much for helping to make history!

If you are on the electoral register in Northern Ireland or Great Britain, you can make a donation of any size. If you donate more than £50, please make sure that your contact details are correct, as we will have to verify your donation against the electoral register.

If you are resident in the Republic of Ireland, you can donate up to a limit of £50.

I am not accepting donations from outside the UK and Ireland.

All donations up to the campaign spending limit will go towards reimbursing the costs of Ash Jones' council election campaign. Anything raised above and beyond this will be used to reimburse the costs of election campaigns of other queer Green candidates standing in the 2023 local elections, or donated to Green Party Northern Ireland.
