Welcome to our latest edition of the Newsflash!
NWCI has been very busy with the Local and European elections on May 24th, promoting our feminist vision for Europe and local communities. Before voting on Friday, check which European candidates have signed up to our #FeministEurope Manifesto. And make sure to look at our Local Election Manifesto and ask candidates questions about these issues when they knock on your door.
NWCI has also prepared a leaflet that explains why we are supporting a Yes vote in the upcoming referendum on divorce. Shortly after the election, join us for our AGM Morning Event – New Voices for Change. We will be inviting newly elected Councillors to hear from the campaign trail, discuss their leadership journey and vision for change.
As always, the support of our members is crucial for everything we do, so if you are not an individual member yet, please consider joining here.
If you have any events or upcoming projects that you would like to advertise, please send them to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
