Elected Councillor, London Borough of Harrow Council
Peymana is an Elected Councillor of the London Borough of Harrow Council, a local government authority in London that provides vital services to citizens, including education, health and policing. One of Peymana’s initiatives has been to create a training and mentoring program to encourage local community members to run for public office. Her efforts have resulted in a number of newly elected officials who are more representative of their community and are already beginning to shape more inclusive decision-making in local institutions. Peymana believes that a standard quality of life, including decent housing, education and healthcare, is a basic human right.
