Leeds Culture Club

WE are hosting the next in our series of 'Culture Club', a feminist night out with books and films! 

WE meet in a central Leeds location, in a wheelchair accessible venue, to discuss titles selected by YOU.
It's a great opportunity to meet other people who love books and film in an informal setting and
to have a good time over craft beers or whatever you fancy.

Our next book is Toni Morrison's BelovedIt's inspired by the life of Margaret Garner, an African American who escaped slavery in Kentucky in 1856 by crossing the Ohio River into Ohio, a free state. When captured, she killed her child rather than have her taken back into slavery.

We'll also be discussing the film On the Basis of Sexstarting Felicity Jones, in a watchable drama about the personal struggle against injustice and prejudice of real-life US supreme court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 
The movie is available on DVD or Amazon Prime to stream. 

WE look forward to welcoming you, whether or not you've had time to read the book or watch the film.

Lambeth Canvas Training Workshop

Are you Canvass Curious?

Between now and the London elections on the 7th May we'll be out talking to voters on the doorstep (aka canvassing).

If you'd like to to get involved but would like some canvassing skills to get you started this is the workshop for you!

 

We'll start off with an introduction to our London election campaign, as well as some activities to help you have great conversations with voters.  You'll also get to meet Korina, our fabulous candidate for Lambeth and Southwark.

Then we'll be trying out our new found skills for real in the local area - you'll be paired with an experience canvasser to practice with.

If you're wary, scared, cautious, not keen, apprehensive, or just don't think you can do it COME ALONG ANYWAY!! We were all nervous the first time we went, but we've found it's really fun, and WE get a great reception on the doorstep.

Every area WE have canvassed WE have increased our vote, and that's because when people hear about our policies face to face they want to vote for us! 

With your help we can get our first London Assembly Member elected.

Leeds Canvassing Training

Women's Equality Party Leeds Branch needs you!

In preparation for the Local Elections on Thursday 7th May 2020, WE need your help with our campaign.
Whether you’re prepared to deliver leaflets or to canvass the opinions of local voters, there’s a role for you in getting WE’s message out: Women's Equality Party has an alternative future for our country - ‘Equality is Better for Everyone’.

The wonderful Dr. Louise Jennings is standing as WE’s candidate in Alwoodley, Leeds.
It’s the second time Louise has stood in this ward and we hope to increase her share of the vote. 
Her target is to beat the Liberal Democrats to take third place. 

WE are offering training sessions for those who are first time canvassers or
more experienced canvassers who just want a refresh. 
At this training we will be talking about the focus of our campaign and the key policy priorities.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. 

Can you join us ... ?

Leeds Postal Vote Preparation

Women's Equality Party Leeds Branch are determined to make an impact in 2020's Local Elections!

WE will be writing to all postal voters in the Alwoodley Ward petitioning them to vote for ourLouise Jennings
fantastic candidate Dr. Louise Jennings

It's the second time Louise has stood in this ward. In last year's election she received 186 votes,
which was 3% of the total ballots cast. Her goals for 2020 are to increase her share of the vote
and to beat the Liberal Democrats by taking third place.

WE's past experience indicates that postal voters are key to the number of overall votes our candidates receive. So WE plan to target these voters in the Alwoodley Ward with personal letters from Louise.
To do this, she needs your help in producing and distributing this publicity. 

Are you able to come on Wednesday 18th March 2020 at 18:30 when we'll be preparing letters for distribution? It's a good opportunity to meet other WE members, make new friends
and share in this important campaign. 

Please join us. You are more than welcome. 

 

 

(If you can also help with Delivering Letters that's wonderful).

Feminist book Club - Revolution From Within

Join us for our regular Feminist Book Club. This month we are reading Revolution from Within: A book of Self Esteem by Gloria Steinham.

Gloria Steinem is recognised by many as an icon of the women's liberation movement. She was a co-founder of Ms magazine and best-selling author of several books.

Revealing her own long quest for self-esteem, she explores the nature of this quality, showing how crippling a lack of it can be, and how recapturing it can transform our lives.

It doesn't matter if you've read the whole book, half of it or the first 10 pages, come and join in the conversation. All welcome.
