Description

Equality Cumbria and Lancashire Public Meeting: How can we make Cumbria a more equitable place?

What's the issue?

The UK is one of the most unequal countries in the developed world in terms of its gap between rich and poor a situation that has been shown to have negative impacts evident for everyone (Wilkinson and Pickett, 2009; 2018).

* Are you concerned about inequality in Cumbria and Lancashire?

* Do you want to join like-minded people to discuss these issues?

* Do you want to challenge the gaps in education, employment, wealth, health and wellbeing?

Who are we?

I hope we become a group of like minded people who seek to raise awareness around inequality and campaign to reduce it i our local area. The group will not be affiliated to any political party, but we are affiliated to the Equality Trust which is a national charity that campaigns to improve the quality of life in the UK by reducing inequality.

What can you do?

Come along to this first public meeting to explore who we are as a group, and how we might want to work together and what we can do together to help tackle inequality and poverty in Cumbria and the UK - please bring along your friends, family and colleagues - thank you!
