BRISTOL AND WECA ELECTIONS 2021
29 April 2021
On 6 May 2021, Bristol will vote to elect a new Mayor as well as voting for City Councillors. A new West of England Combined Authority Mayor will also be elected.
Working with Bristol Refugee and Asylum Seeker Partnership (BRASP), we put together a list of Asks for our new Bristol Mayor and our new Metro Mayor. On behalf of BRASP, Bristol Refugee Rights contacted the candidates. The Asks were also published through our BRASP Public Webinar Event on 29 April 2021.
You can see our Asks here:
