The Labour Muslim Network (LMN) is an inclusive organisation which seeks to promote British Muslim engagement with the Labour Party and in the political process based on our shared values of social justice and equality.
Through encouraging increased participation in politics, and building a strong relationship with the Labour Party, the Labour Muslim Network empowers its supporters to campaign for a fairer, more equal and democratic society. Our members are made up of local activists, ordinary members, Councillors and Members of Parliament.
The Labour Muslim Network offers opportunities to engage with the Labour Party, community development opportunities including training and capacity building, and innovative campaign approaches to members, supporters, CLP’s and the Labour Party as we work together to increase community organisation and deliver a country for the many, not the few.

Help us lead LMN
The Labour Muslim Network was founded by activists, members and councillors from across our movement. We came together to bridge the gap that existed within our communities between the Labour Party and Muslims. Since then, LMN has been working with stakeholders and grassroots members on creating a network that is open and accessible to all. Our current structure includes a national executive committee of volunteers (founding members) from across the country.
In 2019 we launched our consultation program with members on the future of LMN and the platforms you would like us to build. Coming out of that piece of work, you told us to priorities member led activity and to bring together the breadth of members from around the country. This year we organised our first ever LMN national conference with a few to ratifying a brand new constitution - which was scheduled to take place in the summer of 2020.
Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this has had to be postponed until safe gatherings are safe again.
However, this does not mean we stop in our efforts to broaden our team. If you want to be involved in the work of LMN, to help drive our activity and events, please contact us at one of the email addresses provided above and a member of our team will be in touch.
