In the run up to the 2nd May 2019 elections we worked alongside Poverty2Solutions, approaching candidates for councillor and mayoral positions across the North East to promote the implementation of section 1 of the Equality Act 2010. See which candidates and councillors supported the campaign:
Newcastle Upon Tyne
Shehla Khatoon Naqvi
North of Tyne Combined Authority Candidates
In total, 58 candidates and councillors across the region are #1forEquality, although not all names are listed on our website as not all names were given to us in the group photos. They have expressed their support for the socio-economic duty and 39 of them took part in individual or group photos.
If you are interested in getting involved in our work in the North East, or want to find out more, contact the North East regional coordinator, Anya Bonner.
