Help us to take a stand against abuse and harassment in Westminster
MPs can lose their seats for misuse of stationery, but not for sexual harassment or abuse. This is an outrage. The law must be changed so that MPs found guilty of abuse can be fired by their constituents, no exceptions.
The Women’s Equality Party has been campaigning for these crucial changes to the Recall Act for years, and we are about to make a huge breakthrough. Over the coming months Parliament will vote on whether to give you the power to fire your MP if they are found guilty of harassment.
We need to win the vote and we need to make sure it applies to all MPs, no exceptions.
Over the coming weeks we will be campaigning in Delyn, north Wales - the constituency of disgraced MP Rob Roberts. Rob Roberts harassed a member of his staff and was suspended from Parliament for six weeks, but now the suspension is over his constituents are powerless to get rid of him and he will continue to sit as an independent MP unless we take action.
We need your help to step up our campaign and make sure the Tories can’t let him off the hook.
At these phonebanks you will be calling supporters who, like you, want to shake up politics and make change happen. By giving your time, you'll be able to make a massive difference to our campaign by and asking people like you to donate to the campaign.
Things you need to know:
☕ Make sure you have tea and snacks on hand as calling is thirsty work!
📱 Bring your phone - only if you have enough minutes and are happy to do so. We’ll help you turn caller ID off so your number won’t be shared.
😰 If you have never done a phonebank before, or feel nervous about calling strangers, be reassured that we will provide full training at the start and call scripts, and answer all your questions before you start calling.
💻 You'll need your computer/device so we can connect to each other on zoom for the training and to get support as we go along. Staff and senior volunteers will be there to help and support.
🎉 There's a lot to celebrate! Targets, best calls and most successful - although we can't all get together this will be a social event where you can connect with other volunteers.
