Hina Bokhari, AM, presented to Greenwich Lib Dems on Diversity and Inclusion and working more closely with our London Assembly members.
On Thursday, 17 February, Hina gave an online presentation to Greenwich Borough Liberal Democrats Members and Supporters on Diversity and Inclusion and working more closely with our London Assembly members, followed by questions.
Hina Bokhari was elected to the London Assembly in 2021 and also serves as a Merton councillor and joined the Liberal Democrats after the snap election in 2017. She was born and raised in London and is the mother of two young children.
Hina has taught for 20 years in some of London’s most deprived areas and founded two charities to help young people. She witnessed first-hand the damaging effect that education cuts were having to schools and youth services. Hina couldn’t stay out of politics any longer and decided to stand as a local councillor. She won her first election, helping the Merton Lib Dems achieve their best results in 60 years. She became the first BAME councillor in the ward and first Muslim woman elected in the borough. She also stood in Sutton, Cheam and Worcester Park in the 2019 general election.
Hina is passionate about making London great for the next generation and is ready to bring fresh ideas to London. She is determined to make sure young people have a stronger voice in London, to ensure their futures are safe from knife crime and to deal with the climate emergency now. London is liberal and Hina wants the values of openness, inclusion and diversity represented in Westminster and City Hall.
We were delighted that Hina was able to join us virtually for this event.
