"The London Reform Union is an association of men and women who seek to improve the municipal government of London, the administration of its public affairs, and the collective organisation of its civic life. London’s greatest peril is the apathy of Londoners to London matters. In the government of the parish, the district, and the Metropolis as a whole; in the administration of the Poor Law, the Education Acts, and the Sanitary Code; in the management of the Thames and its docks, the public markets, the hospitals, and the police; in the incidence of taxation and the disposal of charities, endowments, and other public funds, as well as in all other London affairs, the London Reform Union seeks to maintain and raise the level of civic duty, to increase the active participation of Londoners in their own public concerns, and to elevate the standard of life of the whole people." - p.2.
