Join our Holyrood election campaign!
Thank you to everyone who applied to be a WE candidate for the 2021 Holyrood election - this party would not have got to where it is today without the members who have stood as candidates. We will be contacting applicants this week and will be asking successful applicants to attend a short interview. Following this there will be a selection meeting on Wednesday 10th March at 6.30 pm when party members will vote for their candidates.
If you missed the deadline for applying to be a candidate and you are interested in standing for WE in Scotland, please contact [email protected].
WE are proud to be standing in the 2021 Holyrood election and campaigning to end sexual violence in Scotland!
In Scotland, legally someone only has to have ‘reasonable belief’ that consent was given, perpetuating stereotypes about women ‘bringing it on themselves’ and ‘asking for it’. That is why WE are calling for the law on consent to be reformed so it is unambiguous and unequivocal! Consent is not ambiguous and until our law reflects this, we will never be able to prevent sexual violence. It is time to end ‘reasonable belief’ in sexual consent.
If you can give just a few hours, you can make a huge difference to our campaign.
WE need as many people as possible to help us activate our members, so we can win the biggest possible vote share in Edinburgh and Glasgow and change the law on consent.
