Ahead of the European Elections, today the Tooting Labour Family were out on the campaign trail with pro-EU, pro-PV supporter Paul Mason.
Being pro-EU and a staunch supporter of a public vote myself, it was great to hear voters are sticking with Labour.
I'm confident that Tooting will reject Farage's blank manifesto.
Today I raised the case of Sarah, a Tooting resident, in Parliament.
Sarah has cerebral palsy and relies on her specialist wheelchair. But it's broken. And the DWP want her to pay £17k to replace it. This is really unfair.
I will be working with the Minister and Sarah to try and sort this out, for her and others. Watch the video here: https://twitter.com/DrRosena/status/1127943884968005632
Tonight I was privileged to speak at the Show Racism the Red Card City Hall Education Showcase.
As Shadow Sports Minister I have raised this issue in Parliament, pushed for debate, and worked tirelessly (alongside great organisations) to raise awareness of.
Work to combat racism in sport is more important than ever, and I will continue to use my voice to combat this issue.
Today I was delighted to be part of the launch of Balham Mosque and Tooting Islamic Centre's Eco Ramadan with Islamic Relief UK. Within minutes of arriving, I was let loose on the bike, pedalled furiously, and whipped up the most delicious smoothie.
Only in Tooting can we be this efficient!
Honoured to host a roundtable on child slavery today with my friend, Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, and pupils from schools across Tooting.
What started with the screening of 'The Price of Free' at Parliament, continued with inspirational discussion, and was topped off with lots of pledges made by everyone in the room.
It was exciting and so motivating to have all that energy in one room. Now to take action!
Tooting is such a great place to live - I am proud to be born and raised here, and to now represent our wonderful community.
However, every week I am contacted by residents with concerns for the state of our streets. And we can all agree it would be great if Tooting were cleaner.
I will be putting forward proposals to the Council in coming weeks demanding change and would like your suggestions on how we can Clean Up Tooting.

It was a pleasure to meet with Tooting campaigner, Hope Virgo, today to support her Dump The Scales Campaign.
Following Hope's experience of being turned away from services for not being "thin" enough, the campaign was born. But this didn't happen to just Hope; it happens to hundreds of people weekly across the NHS.
Over a million people in the UK have suffered from an eating disorder at some point in their life, but many are not properly diagnosed because they are told by GPs they are not under or overweight enough.
Hope is calling on the Government to implement guidelines around eating disorder diagnosis - and Dump The Scales.
I am unbelievably proud to represent such a strong change-maker in Parliament.
Thank you to the 2,300 local people who filled in my ‘Brexit Options’ survey - which helped inform my votes.
After a couple of busy days (or weeks!) it was back to Tooting where Dee Light Bakery put together one of her legendary baking parties for my little girl's birthday.
Needless to say, there were a lot of happy, cake-filled little ladies in Balham and Tooting this afternoon.
Thank you Dee - already looking forward to my next visit.
A million of us marched for a People's Vote today!
People came from Ashford to Aberdeen, from Tyneside to Tooting. And the mood was incredible. The Brexit ship is heading towards an iceberg and the captain has gone full speed - the effect of Brexit will be devastating for jobs, living standards, and our economy.
We won't let it happen; our voices will be heard. Proud to be marching alongside the masses for a People's Vote.
