Event description
Workshop to develop winnable and worthwhile asks for the London Citizens Mayoral Assembly in 2020

About this Event

In the last five years, reports have confirmed that 646 Londoners have died sleeping rough on the streets of London. Shelters are full, support budgets have been slashed, and people are not getting the opportunity to live the life they deserve. This is not how things should be in the city we love!

In 2020, we will elect our Mayor. The Mayor of London has significant powers over rough sleeping that could save people's lives. This includes a budget of around £8.5 million. At such a key political moment, we have a chance to make sure that ending street homelessness is top of the new Mayor's agenda. To do this, London Citizens is organising an assembly at the Copperbox in Stratford on April 21st with 7000 members. If ending street homelessness is on this agenda, we know it can save people's lives.

It has been said that street homelessness is a political choice. If that is the case, then people that are directly affected by and involved with this issue must find space in the public sphere to make their voice heard. This is that space.

If you are serious about ending street homelessness in our city, please join the campaign.
