Feel free to compose your own message of support for the Labour Diversity Fund, or alternatively copy and paste our pre-written letter:
Dear [Insert MP's name],
I am writing to you to express my support for the campaign within the Labour Party for a proposed fund to develop talented individuals from under-represented groups, and provide grants to people unable to sustain the costs of candidacy.
There is unacceptably low level of representation in Parliament of groups from low-income backgrounds such as manual workers, ethnic minorities, women and disabled people. Without proper financial support for such groups there is no way to ensure that this shameful situation will change.
Please therefore support the Early Day Motion (EDM 409) of John Robertson MP calling for the creation of a Labour Diversity Fund. We must start breaking down the barriers that prevent passionate individuals from representing their communities in our national Parliament.
