Council Leader offers support to Camden communities over US travel ban

Camden Council Leader Sarah Hayward has written to community and faith groups to reassure them that hate and division will not be tolerated in Camden. Read the letter.

In her letter, Cllr Hayward says: 'I want to reassure you that while others find it easier to sow division and hate, I will continue to work with you and others across our borough to build consensus, co-operation and community, and to build a borough where everyone is welcome regardless of their background. We will not tolerate hate and division in Camden.'

The letter follows a cross-party motion at Monday’s meeting of Camden Council which condemn recent changes to US immigration policy. You can watch a webcast of the meeting here and read the motion here.
