Event description

Description

Citizens UK is an independent alliance of member faith, education, trade union and community institutions acting together for the common good in a number of cities and towns across the UK. We have trained hundreds of leaders in the tools of community organising, building the power of people to win change.

For highlights of us in action in Birmingham last year please visit: www.storify.com/citizensukbham

At our Pre-election Assembly in April attended by over 450 people, we won pledges on safety, living wage and sanctuary from the main candidates seeking to run the Police and the Council. This was the result of months of listening, researching and acting which determined the turn-out of hundreds of citizens and the specific priorities we put to the Politicians.

On Wednesday 13th July, we invite you to join us to:

  1. Hear news on the pledges made by the Police Commissioner and the City Council 3 months on,
  2. Learn how major decisions for a West Midlands wide Combined Authority headed by an elected Mayor will affect us all, and
  3. Together with friends and allies from communities across the region, begin the listening to establish common agenda priorities we’ll put to the main Mayoral candidates (in front of 1000 of us) at a Pre-election Assembly in March 2017.

There will be lots of meeting, learning, and sharing of top issues with people from across the West Midlands at this event.

We look forward to you joining us on this milestone occasion.
