The New Statesman has published an article by Donna Covey, Chief Executive of the Refugee Council, outlining the support they would like to see from London Mayoral candidates, which includes:

“we would also like to see all candidates for London Mayor express their commitment to welcoming refugees to London. A nationwide initiative has begun, to mark Britain’s cities as ‘Cities of Sanctuary’. The next Mayor has a unique opportunity to back London as the first Olympic City of Sanctuary. Above all, London should be celebrated as providing a place of safety for those fleeing persecution across the world.”

There is a new working group being formed to make London a City of Sanctuary, if you are a Londoner and would like to be involved please contact us.
