It is time for action on economic inequality in London
London is one of the most unequal cities in the developed world. A growing body of international research shows that the greater the gap between rich and poor, the more society is damaged.
Crime, distrust, anxiety and mental illness increase. Economic inequality damages the health and educational chances of our children, rich and poor. Inequality fuels London's housing crisis, and it is bad for the economy - according to the Bank of England, the World Bank and the OECD. Economic inequality harms everyone. The harms it causes cost taxpayers billions. Many thinkers also now believe our extreme inequality is plainly unjust. But our city doesn't have to be like this.
My Fair London works to make London a fairer city, a city where we trust each other, where families can thrive, where people come together. A fairer London will be a more civilised city, a city where life is getting better, a city that leads the world in tackling the many problems that face us.
As a group we organise events to explore the evidence about inequality. We organise campaigns, support local groups, try to come up with actions that will make a difference, and lobby the Mayor of London and the GLA.
We are a group of ordinary Londoners determined change our city for the better. Get involved. Sign our petition below. Sign up as a supporter. Check out the blog pages on this site to read more about inequality in London and what needs to be done.
Join Us TO CREATE A FAIRER CITY. Together we can make a difference for All Londoners.
FAIRER HOUSING, FAIRER PAY, BETTER HEALTH, BETTER EDUCATION, FAIRER TRANSPORT, MORE TRUST, LESS CRIME - A FAIRER CITY FOR EVERYONE
We hold monthly open group meetings to plan our programme of actions. We also organise regular public meetings and discussions about inequality, often with prominent speakers. Sign up as a supporter and you'll get regular emails keeping you up to date with our activities. Our meetings are usually on weekday evenings and start at 6:30pm
