Ann Henderson’s candidate statement

Ann Henderson     Membership Number: A279236

I am standing for re-election to the NEC, committed to representing the views of the grassroots membership and improving support for CLPs across the whole country.

I joined the NEC in September 2018, and was elected Chair of the NEC Equalities Committee in January 2019.

We face the most significant global public health and economic crisis of our lifetime, and must prioritise building on policies developed for our 2017 and 2019 manifestos to win anti-austerity, internationalist Labour governments.

As a Party and trade union activist since the early 1980s, I have extensive experience across the movement at every level, including the Scottish and National Policy Forums, and as a member of Labour’s Scottish Executive Committee. Building a Party which understands devolution is important for us all.

On the NEC and in Scotland I have been centrally involved in re-establishing a Labour women’s organisation, with delegate based, policy-making Labour Women’s Conferences. The experience of the COVID19 pandemic has highlighted the need for women’s experiences and voices to be at the heart of our response.

I am supported by the Centre-Left Grassroots Alliance. Please also support Yasmine Dar, Laura Pidcock, Gemma Bolton, Mish Rahman, and Nadia Jama.
