The Jewish Labour Movement has won a place on a committee charged with implementing the recommendations of Shami Chakrabarti.
The national executive committee’s equalities sub-committee has responsibility for ensuring the participiation and representation of women, LGBT and other minority communities in the party. It will also oversee the implementation of the reports from Chakrabarti and Baroness Royall.
A JLM spokesperson said: “Until now the NEC Equalities Sub-Committee has lacked Jewish representation. Now that this key committee will be implementing the two reports on anti-Semitism and considering the Home Affairs Select Committee report JLM is delighted to have successfully argued the case for permanent representation.”
Figures from across the party came together for a rally against anti-Semitism and racism, organised by JLM, at the party’s annual conference in Liverpool.
A great idea from Jeremy and the leadership team – the Jewish Labour Movement have been invited to join the NEC Equalities Subcommittee. pic.twitter.com/8E7VQcQCbF
