Jo Stevens

A strong voice for Cardiff Central

About

AboutPage.jpg

I'm Jo Stevens, your Labour Member of Parliament for Cardiff Central.

I live in Roath, in the heart of Cardiff Central. I've lived in all four Cardiff constituencies during the last 27 years and I'm really proud of our vibrant, modern, multicultural capital city.

How you feel about living here, what issues concern you and what you want your MP to stand up for really matters to me - so I'd love to hear from you.

 

Family and Personal Background

I have 2 teenage sons. I was state educated in North East Wales, graduated from Manchester University in 1988 and until being elected in May 2015 I was a solicitor and director of Thompsons Solicitors, a UK wide law firm dedicated to representing trade union members and others injured or mistreated at work. 

 

Interests

I've been a Labour Party member and activist for over 30 years. I'm a member of the GMB and Unison unions, of the Fabian and Haldane Societies and the Cooperative Party.

I'm an internationalist, with a particular interest in the protection of human rights in Colombia through active involvement in the NGO Justice for Colombia, on behalf of Colombian trade unionists, human rights defenders and political prisoners there.

I'm an avid follower of many sports, particularly cricket, football, rugby and darts. I'm a member of Glamorgan County Cricket Club, a regular at Cardiff City FC and a supporter of the Cardiff Blues

I enjoy the arts, good books and real ale.
