Inspired by the work of local groups over the last year and the hugely successful The World Transformed fringe festival that took place alongside Labour Party Conference in Liverpool in September, Momentum’s first conference ‘Building to Win’ will take place on Saturday 25th March in Birmingham.
The conference will be open to all Momentum members and feature activist training, political education workshops and discussion focused on four key themes:
Transforming Labour – helping people navigate Labour Party structures and discussing how Momentum can continue to support the transformation of Labour into a grassroots, members-led party that offers a real alternative to the status quo.
Helping Labour Win – supporting Labour to mobilise its mass membership and win elections as well as helping equip people with arguments and effective communication techniques to persuade people of our vision.
Building the movement- discussing how we can further root our movement in communities, developing links with people and other grassroots groups to organise throughout the UK and build support for Labour’s policies.
Building Momentum – building capacity within Momentum networks and groups through skills sharing and training. Building Momentum will help us achieve our first three objectives.
We will be joined by activists from across the country and special guest speakers.
We want a key part of the conference to be sharing best practice from local groups and we know that the best people to teach are those who are active on the ground. If you have experience in any of the above areas from your local group and would like to assist in running a session then please email email@example.com
We will be running sessions on facilitation, campaigning and social media among many other things, tickets are free, and wopen to all members so book your tickets fast. All sessions that happen on the day will be recorded and made available to local groups after the conference.
Through solidarity tickets, we are raising money to provide a hardship fund for travel and we will be providing a play area for children for the day. The venue is fully accessible. If you have any specific accessibility requirements, would like to apply for the hardship fund or would like to book your kids in to use the play area, or if you have any other ideas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
