Every election requires at least two people, the agent and the candidate. The candidate gets the lime light, but the agent controls the purse strings. The agent is a vitally important role and one which we need your help to fill in the 2022 Local elections. If you've ever thought about being an agent and want to learn more, then this zoom meeting is for you. Experienced Agent Matthew Green will give you an overview of what you can expect and what it's actually like. He'll give a 15 minute over view and then take questions.
This is not meant to be a training session, but one to give you a flavour of what the position involves.
If you would like the Zoom details, please RSVP and it will be emailed to you.
“Work towards togetherness” with Hina Bokhari - Wednesday 3rd November at 7p.m. via Zoom
RSVP for zoom details.
The family of the late MP Sir David Amess have said their hearts were shattered by his recent killing and have called on people to "set aside hatred and work towards togetherness". With this in mind we are very fortunate to have Hina Bokhari, our new London Assembly Member, speak to us about the importance of diversity and inclusion on Wednesday 3rd November at 7p.m.
She will be giving a short presentation describing her work followed by an opportunity for us to converse with her. Hina is the Lib Dems first ethnic minority Assembly Member and one of the first Muslim women to sit in the Assembly and has been proactive both inside and outside the party in promoting greater inclusion of diverse communities.
Wandsworth Lib Dems are committed to developing an inclusive and fairer society, and we value the diversity of our local communities. In order to promote this, we want to have greater representation of people from diverse backgrounds at every level of our party. Local parties which have successfully established a diverse membership gain from having a wider range of perspectives and experiences to inform their campaigns and activities. A friendly and welcoming party where there is a feeling of belonging is likely to be one which is most likely to achieve this. The challenge then is for us to become ever better at inviting and welcoming those from different backgrounds to join us. Hina will be helping us with this process.
