WE will be part of the 2016 elections –in London, Scotland and Wales. WE are the first party to crowd source our policies and crowdfund candidate deposits.
For the first time people will have the chance to vote for candidates who are united in their determination to see women enjoy the same rights and opportunities as men.
Because equality is better for everyone.
Now the hard work really begins.
Applications are now open for our members to stand as the first WE candidates.
In January 2016 we will announce WE candidates.
Every pound we raise from today until 5 May 2016 will strengthen our campaign to get those candidates elected.
How does my money help WE candidates?
WE want to support our candidates in ways the other parties often fall short of delivering. WE want to break down the barriers that prevent women from standing for election.
Your donation will help fund:
Childcare costs for candidates who need support to campaign
Media and policy training workshops for candidates and campaigners in every region and nation of the UK
Mentoring during the entire campaign
Bursaries to support candidates who would otherwise be unable to stand
Expansion of our digital campaign through targeted advertising
Printing and delivery of leaflets to people most likely to support us at the ballot box in May
Research to help us understand voters’ priorities
Because when #WEstand together #WE win.
