The Deyika Fund was set up in honour of Deyika Nzeribe who was an inspiring member of the Green Party of England and Wales, and sadly died suddenly during his campaign as 2017 Green candidate for Greater Manchester Mayor.
The Deyika Nzeribe Fund was set up to support the engagement, development and election of Global South heritage candidates.
Ria Patel - who was Chair of the Fund - has been doing excellent work keeping the Deyika Fund moving. Sadly, after being elected to Croydon Council (cue cheers!), Ria is stepping down as Chair on the Deyika Fund (cue sad faces!). We are wishing Ria every best success in their new role and are grateful for all the work they have done on the Deyika Fund.
And this is where you come in!
This is a magnificent opportunity to get involved and contribute to the concrete efforts to increase diverse political representation on Green platforms.
The Board are looking for Greens of Colour as new members in general, and specifically, for a new Chair. If you want to get involved with the Deyika Fund, or you want to join the board, please email us: email@example.com.
