IN OCTOBER we usually celebrate Black History. This month we are looking at how Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Councillors are making new history.
Today we feature Cllr Dipa Das, who represents St Dunstan’s ward in Tower Hamlets. Here are two recent tweets from Cllr Das’s Twitter account.
●Here is Cllr Das standing up for the poor:
“I’ve just signed the petition calling on the government to give Disabled people on other benefits the emergency £20 increase that Universal Credit has seen. Will you join me?”
