Trio of user-led organisations challenge London’s next mayor on equality | DisabledGo News and Blog

I know this one is a little tenuous, but one of the organisations involved is specifically connected to London Transport, and it is a good piece about something very important.

A trio of user-led organisations have challenged the capital’s next mayor to address the inequality faced by disabled Londoners. Inclusion London, The Alliance for Inclusive Education (ALLFIE) and Transport for All launched a manifesto this week, which brings together the key commitments they want all of London’s mayoral candidates to sign up to. The Disabled People’s Challenge To The Next Mayor of London includes polices on independent living, inclusive education, transport and housing. More than 30 disabled people were outside City Hall to launch the event. The three disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) point out that the mayor and the London Assembly – which is also facing elections on 5 May – have “significant powers that can address disadvantage and enable disabled Londoners to participate as active citizens in the life of the capital city”. The main candidates seeking election as mayor are Tory Zac Goldsmith, Labour’s Sadiq Khan, Sian Berry for the Greens, Liberal Democrat
