COULD ALL LOCAL GROUP CO-ORDINATORS PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH THEIR LOCAL GROUP MEMBERS – MANY THANKS!
Mostly requests for your help in various ways this month but some news as well:
FAIRNESS COMMISSIONS – the steady rise of fairness commissions continues.The latest one to emerge is in Blackpooland Richard Wilkinson is advising and will doubtless draw on his Islington experience. Any steps you might be able to take to lobby your council to set up a fairness commission would be a wonderful, practical response to the ongoing unfairness of the austerity measures now really biting across the country.
RUN FOR EQUALITY – the dates for TET’s sponsored races have been set: 12 August (Leeds 5k), 8 September (London5k) and 6 October (Kielder Water, Northumberland 10k). If you could join our teams for any of these three events and help raise money for our work with local groups, please contact[email protected]
CAMPAIGN ACTIONS – a couple of gentle reminders if I may… (1) if you haven’t had chance to contact your MP about our latest research digest on social mobility it would be great if you could find two minutes to do so by taking this online action and (2) if you’ve not yet had chance to take action on our Act Local campaign, you can do so here.
CAN YOU HELP? – we are looking for a bit of help and advice in a couple of areas. We would like to hear from any journalists or people who have done media work – knowledge about media planning for campaigns would be especially welcome. We would also like to hear from any animators and / or graphic designers. If you fall into one of these categories or know someone who does and might be interested in helping us out, please contact me at[email protected]
uk(I will respond from 8th May onwards when I’m back from holiday).
GROUPSHARE – could all local group co-ordinators please send me any content for the next mid-month GroupShare by end of May 14th at the latest? Thank you.
AND FINALLY – just a reminder that there’s no bulletin next month as we’ll be sending you the May edition of Among Equalsinstead, our quarterly newsletter…
Thanks for your support and keep spreading the word!
Best Wishes, Bill.
