The reason Nildhara Gadani is standing for council elections

I stood for council election in 2016 as well. It was a great learning experience for me. I am running for the council election for the below reasons:

  • I believe the voices of migrants, especially women migrants, are under-represented in my council. I want to change this.
  • I believe there is work to be done to make our community even more beautiful, safe, and prosperous.
