Oxford and Reading Citizens Choose their first Priority Campaigns

Oxford Citizens Campaign themes

While Refugee Justice, Cost of Living, and Traffic issues all placed highly for Oxford Citizens' Delegates in the end they opted for "Housing Justice as their first priority campaign. Oxford is one of the most expensive places to live in the UK. With increased challenges around travelling in Oxford, finding affordable places to rent in the city has become even more pressing.

Oxford Citizens Campaign Team Meetings can be found here.

General Election Strategy and Training

Leaders from across our 550 member organisations in England and Wales are meeting with MPs to negotiate on our national campaign themes. We will be making our final decision on what these are in July (details to follow to our mailing list soon). If you would like to find out more AND get some brilliant training on this please register for our Learning Thursday series here.
