Welcome to Women's Equality Party Brighton. The original Brighton branch has divided into four and we're now striking out on our own. We'd love your help in creating a strategic, safe, fun local branch.
We cover two parliamentary constituencies - Brighton Pavilion and Brighton Kemptown. If you live within these areas, or if you live elsewhere but are passionate about Women's Equality in Brighton, please come along to one of our regular events to find out how you can get involved.
We will be standing our first candidate, Bev Barstow, in our local council elections on 2nd May 2019 but we need your help!
Hanover and Elm Grove Ward consists of about 7000 households; between now and May our aim is to have spoken to every single one of them. This means turning out every Saturday morning and every Wednesday evening to knock on doors, street by street. So far it has proved to be a fascinating experience; the ward is diverse and concerns are extensive - we genuinely believe we can address these challenges. But to do so we need as many WEP members and supporters to come and join in as often as they can.
We will be meeting at at 10.00 am on Saturdays and 6.00pm on Wednesdays at The Village Cafe Bar, 129 Islingword Road, and canvassing for about 2 hours. We’ll finish with a warming drink and a debrief at the cafe after!
We would love for you to join us, even just for an hour, to chat to voters in the ward about WEP, what we stand for, and the changes we want to see in our city. You will be with at least one other person at all times, you will have a crib sheet of key messages to help you, and you can pass difficult conversations over to the Exec during the debrief.
Don’t worry about lack of experience - it’s always a lot of fun.
