Prior to the Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections on Thursday 6th May, we spoke to Clive Grunshaw, incumbent Labour candidate for Lancs PCC, about his priorities and plans should he be elected. This conversation was held in partnership with Deepdale Community Association.
During our conversation, which was hosted by Bilal – one of our MEND Preston volunteers – Clive was asked to discuss his priorities discussed his discuss his commitment to engaging with the Muslim community and tackling all forms of hate crimes including Islamophobia. As someone who has been in the role since 2012 (when the PCC role was initially created), Clive felt that he had an understanding of the diverse communities that make up the Lancashire area and he has strategies in place that will help to address concerns of minoritized communities in the area.
Many thanks to PCC Clive Grunshaw for answering our questions, to Bilal for hosting the conversation and a huge thanks to our numerous volunteers across Lancashire who have been working tirelessly during the election period to meet candidates and local organisations to ensure the Muslim community is able to make an informed decision at the polls.
You can catch up on the full conversation here.
We reached out to all the candidates for the Lancashire PCC Elections so that the Muslim community has the opportunity to ask them questions on their policies.
