History of policy creation:
In 2015 WE launched a comprehensive and completely crowdsourced policy document covering six important policy areas. You can see details of the policy areas by clicking the tiles on the page below.
At our first conference in 2016 our members voted to add a seventh policy area - Equality in Health. The policy was developed by experts, crowdsourced with members and supporters, then launched and agreed by our members at our second conference in 2018. See details of the other policies and motions proposed and agreed at our conferences below.
We have an elected Policy Committee in place to develop and implement our policies in each of the areas, and a dedicated policy team for Scotland. They regularly hold online meetings for members to update them on the policy area and invite you to get involved in activism. Become a member today to make sure you are included.
We haven't stopped there! When we stood in the General Election in 2017 we wrote a fully-costed, groundbreaking manifesto, and in 2019 we stood in the European Parliament for the London list and launched another accompanying manifesto. Each time, we presented them wrapped in a bow and with a 'please steal me' label to the other political parties in the race, because we believe they're too good to keep to ourselves. #nickablepolicies
In 2020, WE held our third Conference online. Members, committees and caucus's were given the opportunity to propose and debate various motions within our Party Business session. To find out which motions passed, please click the link below.
In 2021, WE contested the 2021 London elections with a pivotal manifesto that aimed to Build Back Equal from the pandemic, and make ending violence against women and girls a political priority.
