National Executive Committee Election Campaigning for a Labour victory
Yasmine Dar A Party member for over five years and activist for many more, I have always been committed to changing my community and our society for the better. My life experience as a single mother, social worker, multi-faith prison chaplain and now representative on Manchester City Council has helped shape my politics and inform my socialism. Proud of my Asian roots, I have faced down strong challenges from UKIP and the BNP in my council ward in Manchester by selling hope over division. I have known hardship and struggle in my life but I have never felt more confident that we are building a Party that will radically transform our country. Jeremy’s leadership has inspired so many into our movement – something to be celebrated and embraced. However, this requires actions and not just words. Therefore, I will always fight for a Party that is fair, transparent and above all else democratic. Yasmine is a member of Gorton CLP. Membership Number: L1173052
Rachel Garnham I’ve been a Labour Party activist for over 20 years, during which I’ve held numerous positions, including being a National Policy Forum CLP representative and nearly 10 years as CLP Secretary. I fully support Jeremy’s leadership and his progressive agenda against austerity, war and racism. Under Jeremy’s leadership, and with an antiausterity plan for growth, we can achieve a transformative Labour government. With the hard work and empowerment of members old and new, we can build on the general election successes and defeat this heartless, damaging and incompetent government. Our party needs to be much more inclusive and democratic. If elected I will be a voice for grassroots members, a champion for Party democracy and work towards a general election victory.

Jon Lansman A Labour member since 1974, I worked closely with Tony Benn through the 1980s and currently chair Momentum’s governing body. As well as helping mobilise tens of thousands of activists during the 2017 General Election, I played a leading role in Jeremy Corbyn’s two leadership campaigns and have spent 40 years campaigning for a more democratic member-led Labour Party. I want to see a socialist Labour government with a radical, inspiring programme. Global capitalism that owes nothing to people or places has utterly failed to deliver investment for growth, secure well paid jobs for all, quality public services and a welfare state that will eradicate poverty, inequality and injustice. Only a Corbyn-led government harnessing state power in the interests of people not profit can deliver that. On the NEC, I’ll push for party reform to empower our members to elect a government to transform Britain. Jon is a member of Bermondsey and Old Southwark CLP. Membership Number: A018501 support the democratically elected Labour leadership’s progressive policies so that we win over the voters.
