If the last 16 months of Momentum has shown anything its that there is an appetite for organising from the grassroots. People want to get stuck in campaigning in communities and arguing for socialism in their CLP, trade union or at Labour Party conference. People want to learn from other areas: there campaigns, their victories, the materials they used.
In the absence of the founding conference planned for February we are organising this Grassroots conference on Saturday 11 March (venue and city to be confirmed) which will be about both discussing the way forward in Momentum as well as sharing and learning from other experiences with opportunities to discuss crucial campaigns including NHS, fighting for migrants rights and against racism, organising for Labour Party conference delegates and getting involved in your CLP.
- Put this date in your diary
- Get your group to support it (already the majority of groups in the Northern region have backed this call)
- Agree to book transport and send representatives from your local group.
- Watch this space for venue, and times and how to get involved.
