Bury South Canvassing GE 15/11

Our brilliant candidate Gemma Evans is standing in Bury South in the general election. Join us on the campaign trail!

We are standing against MPs with unresolved allegations of violence or harassment at the general election.

Join our campaign in Bury South on Friday 15 November. Ivan Lewis was accused of sexual harassment by a 19-year-old student but he resigned before a verdict could be reached by the Labour party investigation, and he has continued to act as an independent MP until the election. WE will be campaigning for changes to the Recall Act to empower constituents to remove MPs who have been found guilty of harassment or violence by an independent process.

Let's end abuse, starting with Westminster.

We start all canvassing sessions with training. New canvassers are welcome and will be paired with experienced canvassers.

Wear comfy shoes, bring your phone and we'll bring the rest.

Feminist Book Club - Hidden Figures

hidden_figures.jpg

This month we are reading Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee-Shetterly.

Set against the backdrop of the Jim Crow South and the civil rights movement, the true story of NASA’s African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in America’s space program—and whose contributions were previously unheralded.

Before John Glenn orbited the Earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as “Human Computers,” calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts by Jim Crow laws, these “colored computers,” as they were known, used slide rules, adding machines, and pencil and paper to support America’s fledgling aeronautics industry, and helped write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.

As ever it doesn't matter if you've read half the book, all of it or just the first 10 pages, all are welcome. Come and join in the conversation.

Election fundraising phonebank

Give few hours of your time to make a huge difference.

A General Election has been announced and we need to raise enough money to fund our stand-out election strategy: WE will stand five survivors against five MPs with unresolved allegations of harassment and violence - because violence has no place in parliament. We need as many volunteers as possible to join us to call our members and donors to tell them about our exciting campaign and invite them to make a donation to build our campaign fund. 

You will be calling supporters who, like you, want to shake up politics and make change happen, and who have told us they want to be called by us. By giving your time on this important day, you'll be able to make a massive difference to the five formidable women who will be standing up against MPs who should be held accountable. Please sign up asap to let us if know you can attend. 

Things you need to know: 

☕ Tea and snacks will be provided to keep you going.

😰 If you have never done a fundraising phonebank before, or feel nervous about calling strangers, be reassured that we will provide full training and call scripts, and answer all your questions before you start calling. If you still don't fancy calling we have plenty other ways you can help, such as sending follow-up texts, so please sign up even if you are not completely sure.

🎁 We know you're not in it for the swag, but... each phonebanker who joins us on the night will get a limited edition WE goody bag and there will be a special prize to the person who raises the most on the night. Don't miss out!
