Thanks for your interest in WE Lambeth! The Lambeth branch of the Women's Equality Party is a growing group of volunteers committed to change in our borough. WE stood in our first Local Election last year and our candidate, Janet Baker, received a vote from 1 in 4 people.
Next year WE will be standing in the Greater London Assembly (GLA) election; and we have a great chance to get a WE representative elected to bring about real change for women in London. Will you help us?
There's loads going on and different ways for you to get involved, here's a list of our upcoming events:
- Trip to the Black Cultural Archives' exhibition Radiating Greatness: Stories of Black Leadership: Saturday 18th May, meeting outside at 2pm.
How to grab equal pay by the balls: this is a talk organised by our sister branch in Southwark to fundraise for the GLA election. Lewes FC Women's football team is the only women’s team in the world to be paid the same as the men - their "Equality FC" Campaign Manager, Karen Dobres, will be talking about how they achieved it. Book a ticket here >>
- WE Learn From Scratch: our popular event to talk through the WE manifesto and discuss our thoughts on a particular area of policy will next be held on Tuesday 21st May - venue TBC - please save the date and keep an eye out for more information. This is ideal for anyone interested in getting more involved with WE but unsure where to start!
