Potential Candidates

According to Wikipedia the candidates listed below are running or planning to run to be the next Mayor of London.

We have listed them alphabetically, and done some research to find out their official website addresses, Facebook pages and Twitter profiles so you can like and follow their campaigns and find out what they stand for.

We intend to write to each of the candidates and ask them about their plans;

(a) to tackle hate crime in London and,

(b) how they will work with communities affected by hate crime.

Under the current administration, the Mayor’s Office Policing and Crime (MOPAC) launched the MOPAC Hate Crime Reduction Strategy for London, which included promoting National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

We think it is important that the next Mayor of London supports and continues this important work. Hopefully you do to – and we encourage you to raise this with the candidates you are supporting.

We look forward to posting their replies in due course.
