It is a place full of the things that I most adore; cosmopolitan culture, hundreds of campaigning organisations that fight for a better world on a daily basis, and innumerable opportunities for personal development.
Despite all of this, I can’t help but lament the fact that in one of the most prosperous cities in the world, thousands are homeless and sleep rough every night. There are hundreds of thousands of people that are unable to shape the way their communities’ resources are spent due to recent changes to the electoral register, and the gender pay gap between women and men is greater than anywhere else in the country. London should be a bastion of hope to the rest of the world, and we want to help it become such a place.
