Party Awards: Simran Meji – reaching out with relentless energy

This week we are highlighting winners of the Party Awards at our recent Conference. The Bertha Bowness Fischer Award is presented to a new member who has made a big impact. It went to Simran Meji. See the video of the whole party awards session below and the submission made in support of Simran under the cut.

Simran first got involved with our local party in summer 2019. She came to a policy event and actively participated and shared her frustrations about how the room was not representative of the country or our borough. We spoke to her and she shared her ideas on how we could be reaching out – from then on, she kept putting ideas forward and offering to help.

Later that year at our AGM she stood as an Ordinary Member for our Exec, and was appointed our Diversity Officer. Since then she has pursued projects with relentless energy: making sure our pizza and politics events covered topics around race; reaching out to BAME members to ask about candidacy; and beginning the enormously important work of mapping out community groups across the borough with the view to actively engaging with them (through public events such as Lib Dems 101).
