Citizens UK: Birmingham Assembly 2021

Citizens UK: Birmingham Assembly 2021

6pm - 8pm | Thursday 25 March 2021 | Online

In 2019, we carried out an extensive listening campaign to unpack top civil society priorities for the West Midlands regional elections in 2020. Then the Covid-19 pandemic struck, postponing the elections to 2021. We adapted our focus to fighting the spread of the virus & responding to arising community issues. Here’s a short thread on how we organised in 2020.

On Thursday 25th March 2021 at 6pm, amidst celebrating our diversity and sharing powerful stories, we will launch civil society priorities for this year's regional elections at our online Accountability Assembly.

We do not support any political party, but we take voting and community leadership seriously. Our people-powered Assemblies show the importance of civil society to set out a clear agenda for change to public bodies. Sheikh Nuru Mohammed, Co-Chair of Citizens UK: Birmingham.

We are committing time, money & energy on our priorities to make families better off, communities safer and build a region of welcome. We seek a public and accountable relationship with all in decision making power to make them happen. Liz Coleman, Co-Chair of Citizens UK: Birmingham.

We hope you can join us for what is expected to be an energising evening of communities acting together to build hope during this pandemic.
