FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lawyer Politician Helen Grant MP Nominated for Championing Social Justice
Helen Grant MP of Maidstone and The Weald has been nominated for the inaugural Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Award. The award looks to recognise outstanding diplomats and politicians in the UK for their dedication, commitment and selfless efforts in representing civilian matters at the highest level.
Nominated under the Social Driver category, Ms Grant is well-known for publicly speaking out for social justice. Coming from a legal background, the MP has defended the cuts against providing legal aid for low-income families experiencing domestic difficulties. Ms Grant is sympathetic in preserving the power of the family and believes family is a fundamental tool in keeping society together.
Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, Director of Grassroot Diplomat said, “Grassroot diplomacy empowers the voiceless, defines a path for the hopeless, and restores faith to influencers. The Initiative Award seeks to build trust again between the ‘us and them’ and bring people of all statuses together.”
Ms Grant is committed to engaging the grassroots in its combined efforts to protect social mobility, and for this, her efforts are being recognised here.
Over 50 high-level government officials have been nominated in 3 categories but there can only be six winners. Join Helen Grant and other government nominees at the Vincent Rooms, Westminster with evening performance led by Euro-Vision Song Contest artist, Imaani.
