Keir Starmer

27 years ago my son, Stephen Lawrence, was killed in a racially motivated attack as he waited for a bus. He didn’t find justice for almost two decades – failed by the justice system and an institutionally racist police force – until 2012 when two of his killers were finally found guilty and sent to prison. As Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer led the charge to bring Stephen’s killers to justice, which my family and I are grateful for. There are so many people in this country who are desperate for a more just society. I know that Keir is the person to take on the Tories, win a general election and enact the radical change that only a Labour Government can make. I will be voting for Keir Starmer to be the next Leader of the Labour Party. Will you?
Keir is one of the brightest legal minds in this country. He has a track record of standing up for the powerless, against the powerful. I’ve seen first hand how effectively he can do it. I’m putting my trust in him to find justice for everyone in this society the way he did for me and my family. I think that you should too. Doreen Lawrence
