WebRoots Democracy invites you to an evening event entitled:

The People's Mayor: In conversation with Magid Magid

Since becoming Lord Mayor of Sheffield in 2018, Magid 'Magic' Magid has taken the political scene by storm, making headlines in the UK and across the world. A former child refugee, Magid is Sheffield City Council's first Green Party mayor and its youngest at 29. His monthly campaigns have reached millions of people online and have touched upon a wide range of issues including knife crime, climate change, Brexit, and the NHS.

Areeq Chowdhury (Chief Executive, WebRoots Democracy) will be in conversation with Magid and will be delving into his journey from Somali refugee to one of the most engaging young politicians the UK has ever seen. In particular, we will be exploring his methods for "doing politics differently".

Join us in Shoreditch, East London on the 9th of April to listen, question, and learn from his story.

Spaces are limited and you will need to be on the guestlist in order to attend.
