Rakesh Prashara - Membership Officer & Regional Officer (North East)
I have a background in Environmental organising. I've organised with NGO's as well as supported grassroots campaigns.
The Green Party offers the most wide ranging solutions for a just transition away from fossil fuels. But it and the rest of the Environmental Movement in the UK are represented by a majority white voices. While the most severe consequences of Climate Change are affecting communities of colour. It is this disparity I would like to challenge.
My hope is that we make more effort in welcoming people of colour to the Green Party. And support them to take roles with responsibility within the Party.
I would also like us to challenge the practices that are enabling the status quo.
