Sadiq Khan was elected for a second term as Mayor of London in May 2021. He was previously an MP for Tooting, South London for 11 years and served as Shadow Secretary of State for Justice from May 2010 and Shadow Minister for London from 2013.
He is the first Mayor of London to set out a strategic approach for social integration with his Social Integration strategy and the first London Mayor to appoint a Deputy Mayor for Communities and Social Justice to champion this work. Sadiq Khan firmly believes that London’s recovery from Covid-19 must ensure that nobody is left behind, and no one organisation or sector can tackle these challenges alone. This has led the Mayor to set up the London Recovery Board, bringing together representatives from business, public sector agencies, and civil society to tackle the inequalities exposed by the pandemic. With social integration as one of the key priorities of his administration, the Mayor’s focus on making
the built environment more equitable, the Green New Deal, and standing up to racism, are now shaping London’s recovery.
