Why vote?

Black women have been denied a voice for centuries, we have a lot of catching up to do.

 

What will you be voting for?

84% of NHS staff considered leaving last year. It is my  public duty to save our NHS.

 

Who would be your fantasy MP and why?

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie! We need some more creatives in Parliament.
