Neville Lawrence, father of Stephen Lawrence, is supporting my campaign to be the next Labour MP for Holborn and St Pancras.
“I know how hard it is to struggle for justice and national change – but I know that these are the things that Raj would deliver on. He has worked for many hours, free of charge for anti racist campaigns and he has my full backing. He is a renowned lawyer committed to equality and solidarity with deep roots in the community – that is what I want to see in a Labour MP”
I am honoured to be backed by Neville Lawrence. He is an icon of the civil rights movement, who has fought for justice for his murdered son for 20 years. His fight has led to profound national changes; in the police force, in criminal justice and in society more widely. I hugely admire him and I am committed to that same fight. I believe politics is about standing up for those that have been wronged, those that need justice, those that need help – and that is why I am standing to be an MP.
