General introductory session to Community Organising with Movement for Change and Kathryn Perera

Movement for Change are offering a general introductory session to Community Organising for London activists on 13th October (about 3 hours) It will be at 23 Orford Road Walthamstow London E17 9NL [see map]. It will look at the key principles of community organising and how they can be used to develop community campaigns in Walthamstow and other constituencies. 

We can accommodate a maximum of 20 attendees. The event is open to Labour Party members, activists, and supporters from across London; Walthamstow members and activists will get priority but it will get booked up. The speakers will include Kathryn Perera, CEO of M4C, and Kate Talbot. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. To book contact 07957 242221.

In Walthamstow we have already run a number of community campaigns, including the missing millions voter registration, the end legal loan sharking campaign [now taken up nationally], the heat and eat project, the sexual health services provision campaign, and the riots response panel. If there are issues you feel strongly about this is the ideal way to learn how to link up with others who share your feelings and develop a campaign. Our CLP's work with M4C on Loan Sharking was singled out as an example of best practice by Labour Party General Secretary Iain McNicoll at the London Labour reception at Conference last week.
