Subject: Disabled members NEC rep candidacy
I know it is a very hectic time for CLP secretaries at the moment, with nominations for so many elections and the ongoing pandemic so firstly I want to say thank you for taking the time to read my email, and for all that you do for the party.
I am writing to ask that Broadland CLP consider nominating me for disabled members rep on the NEC at your upcoming nomination meeting. It would be fantastic if you could let me know the details of your nomination meeting and disability officer by responding to this email, so that I can arrange for someone to speak on my behalf.
I’m not standing in this election to just win one seat on the NEC, I’m standing to win a Labour Party that works for and is led by disabled people.
If elected I’ll empower disabled members by fighting for a real, democratic say in how Labour is run, with our own structures embedded in the movement. I’ll fight to transform Labour by breaking down the barriers which have shut out disabled people for too long, with a Party-wide accessibility review to open up Labour to new and experienced members; and I’ll work to make sure disabled people have a say in the policies that will affect them, to keep Labour’s pledge to scrap Universal Credit once and for all and for an end to benefit sanctions and work capability assessments.
I am proud to have the support of Disability Labour, Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), Unite the Union, ASLEF, TSSA, the bakers union (BFAWU), and the FBU in this campaign and hope that I can gain the support of Broadland CLP too.
Thanks again for your time and all you do for our party,
