Meeting a legend

Today I had the pleasure of meeting US civil rights icon Reverend Jesse Jackson, at the launch of the Operation Black Vote (OBV) later voter registration publicity campaign in Westminster. Emblazoned on an OBV 100 foot billboard poster was the slogan: 'Expect the best from yourself and society - Register to vote'. This aims to mobilise BME communities up and down the UK to use their voice and their vote in the upcoming elections.

BME communities will have a major impact on the outcome at the general election and also on London's Local Election, in which I will be a Conservative candidate.

There are just a few weeks left to register to vote for an election on May 6th. This is the most important election in a generation and offers the country a real opportunity for change. So if you want to have a voice, make sure you register.

You'll find an online form to register to vote on Croydon Council's web site, follow the link here and follow the link to the Voter Registration Form.

You Choose ... Your future

Selhurst Ward has the 3rd highest youth crime rate in the Croydon Borough. I was therefore very excited to have been able to attend a brilliant performance by the BRIT School on Monday the 12th of February to raise awareness of knife crime. Many important questions related to vulnerable families and young people, poverty, involvement in gangs, peer pressure and the impact of crime were raised. Afterwards there was an interesting panel discussion during which issues around identity, youth involvement in decision making and engaging the community in reducing youth crime were raised. The School in collaboration with the Metropolitan Police would like to take the production to schools and community groups across Croydon and even in London. This initiative should be supported. I hope that community groups including faith based groups would make use of this opportunity to talk about knife and youth crime in Selhurst Ward in particular and Croydon in general. What is clear is that we need a much more joined up approach to youth crime in Croydon that should come from the community itself instead from being imposed from the top.
