Gemma Bolton’s candidate statement

Gemma Bolton       Membership Number: L1405940

I am standing for Labour’s NEC to seek a mandate for a radical policy agenda going into the 2024 general election and unite the party in support of progressive policies, including public ownership, strong opposition to austerity, and a Green New Deal to tackle the climate emergency.

These policies are overwhelmingly popular with voters and provide a platform for power to elect a Labour government.

I am also standing on a platform of anti-racism, an end to scapegoating of migrants, and for equality, peace and human rights.

An active member of Labour’s South-East Regional Executive for the last 4 years, I am also the South-East Youth Representative on the National Policy Forum and a constituency representative on the Women’s Conference Arrangements Committee. Through these roles and other campaigns, I have developed vast experience of internal party organising and knowledge of our party’s structures. I have fought for greater democracy and a voice for grassroots Labour members at all levels of our party.

I am supported by the Centre-Left Grassroots Alliance. I am fighting for a socialist Labour Government that will deliver the radical change we need.

Please also support Yasmine Dar, Ann Henderson, Nadia Jama, Laura Pidcock and Mish Rahman. Contact Channels: [email protected] | @gembolton
