Up To Us – the campaign to remake democracy

05 Dec 05 Dec

People's History Museum, New Court Street, Manchester, M3 3ER, M3 3ER

Thursday 05 Dec 19 - Thursday 05 Dec 19 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

We’re supporting the launch of this campaign as part of #DemocracyDay. 

The way we make decisions isn’t working. Our democratic system is in urgent need of renewal.

That’s why we’re supporting the launch of Up To Us, to make our democracy fit for the 21st Century. The campaign is already getting traction, featuring in the Guardian’s recent editorial on democratic renewal. Over 80 civil society organisations have signed the Up to Us statement, as well a host of academics, writers, activists and social entrepreneurs.

Join us at the People’s History Museum in Manchester – the national museum of democracy – with a variety of speakers from different backgrounds, united by their belief in the need to act now to renew our democracy. Speakers so far include:

  • Eve Holt, Happen Together CIC and DivaManc
  • Neil McInroy, Centre for Local Economic Strategies
  • Hazel Blears, Co-operative Group
  • Harriet Andrews, The Politics Project
  • Eliza Tyrrell, Green Party
  • Yasmin Fitzpatrick, The Brexit Party

The event is free to attend and open to all – hope you can be part of it!
