Feeling Unheard By Politicians...

Get yourself along to a local hustings (essentially a panel of everyone running to be your MP ready to answer whatever questions you've got). What do you want your MP to do? Here's what we're asking them to do... 

1. Defend the UK aid budget. Since the 1990s, UK aid has helped to halve the number of people living in extreme poverty and brought access to improved drinking water to 2 billion people.

 

2. Ensure that Britain continues to act as a global leader in tackling climate change, both at home and abroad. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the communities we support overseas.

 

3. Champion the rights of the 65 million people around the world who are on the move – both refugees and people who have been forced from their homes and displaced within their own countries.

 

4. Support measures to make tax more transparent. Developing countries currently lose around $200bn a year due to tax dodging by multinational companies.

Now it's your turn. Make your voice heard!
