Event description

Description

Although registration is now closed, it is likely that there will be space for you on the night! So do just come along, or email us at policynetwork@democratsabroad.org.uk to receive more information or updates.

Do you want to work with other DAUK members who are involved in addressing vital policy issues, both current and longer term?

Meet and join our dynamic teams working on Voting Rights, Healthcare Reform, Minority Rights, Economic Issues, Environment and Energy Issues.

Engaging with policy issues would be important in "normal" times, but under the Trump administration, staying engaged
and vigilant has never been more important.

While the media focuses on his twitter storms,
damaging actions and policies on voting rights, the environment, key civil rights, employment, healthcare, taxation, and financial regulation are in danger of slipping under the radar.

Instead of re-acting, now is the time to discuss and build the alternatives.

At this launch meeting, you can find out more about the general rationale and operation of the Policy
Network, find out what is happening in the various groups (focussing on any one of them or all 5), and meet with other interested members to collaborate and share ideas.

You are welcome to arrive at 6:30 for a friendly, informal drink before the meeting begins.
