Alexandra Louise Phillips is the Green Party MEP for the South East Region.
Originally from Liverpool, she now lives in Brighton with her husband and small son, Rafi.
She came to the party having grown disillusioned by New Labour and Tony Blair's involvement in the Iraq war. Growing up in the wake of the Toxeth riots, she had a keen sense of social justice and believed that the Greens were the party for assuring social justice.
Today, Alex sits on:
Employment and Social Affairs (Member)
Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (Substitute)
Women's Rights and Gender Equality(Substitute)
She's also a substitute member for the Delegation for relations with the Pan-African Parliament and a full member of the Delegation to the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly.
Alex's main passion project as an MEP is the Green New Deal (a plan to create secure, well-paid jobs by investing in green industries).
