BE A GREEN COUNCILLOR
Hackney residents have the opportunity to elect amazing Green councillors in 2022!
Could YOU be Hackney’s next Green councillor?
You can be a part of a growing team of inspirational candidates, volunteers, activists and local supporters, all working for the same goal: to make real change for Hackney.
Hackney Green Party is the hard working, credible and vital opposition that Hackney so desperately needs. The social, ecological and climate emergencies that we are living through demand that we elect strong and diverse Green voices as soon as possible.
We are looking to select FIVE target candidates to be councillors in TWO central Hackney wards: Dalston and Hackney Downs. (Please note: You do not need to live in these wards.)
If you are interested in being a councillor, this is the time to let us know! We are focusing on 5 candidates in 2 wards so that we can win under First Past The Post and elect you as a Green councillor!
We especially welcome applications if you self-identify as a person of colour, as living with a disability, as a woman, non-binary or gender-fluid, or as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.
