Chair of Chinese for Labour, Sarah Owen has been selected as Labour Candidate for Luton North in the election on 12 December 2019.

Every community across Luton deserves better than a Conservative Government that has handed down cuts to services and allowed big businesses to exploit local workers. Sarah's experience working in care, in hospitals and in the fire brigade means she knows the difference that well resourced public services can bring to the town and will fight tooth and nail for the investment that Luton needs.

She has a proven track record of delivering change - whether that’s against Tory cuts, or securing better rights for workers from foster carers to the emergency services, manufacturers to shop workers in Luton North - they are all better protected because of laws I’ve helped change and campaigns she has run. And she will continue to deliver if elected as MP.
