In May 2018 there will be local council elections across all London Boroughs! Many of Labour’s priorities can only be delivered through local action and Labour needs dynamic, committed members to stand to represent their communities.
This training session is open to all Momentum members who are considering standing for councillor. We particularly encourage those who identify as women, BAME, LGBT+ or disabled to apply as these groups are often underrepresented in local councils. In order to stand you must have been a Labour Party Member for 12 months to the date of your application.
At this session we will have a panel of experienced councillors to talk through:
- what councillors do
- the application and election process
- and to answer any questions you may have.
For those of you who do decide to stand, this will also be a chance to form a network through which we can offer support throughout the process.
We expect this to be a busy event so tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis!
