Dispatch from the campaign #16

Conference is just around the corner, and we have loads of exciting news to share this week!

Firstly, the one and only Ash Sarkar will be hosting our rally for a Green New Deal at conference. Don’t miss it.

We’re also delighted to announce that 75 CLPs are sending our motion to conference! Congratulations and thank you to everyone who worked so hard on this. The deadline for CLPs to submit theirs is midday next Thursday. It’s not too late to pass it in yours. Get a copy of it here.

On Thursday Labour Party Graphic Designers released the wonderful Climate Emergency artpack produced in collaboration with Labour for a Green New Deal.

Culture, as much as policy, will play a huge role in building the future we are working for. Artwork and design can help us to imagine and articulate our vision. These posters, created by 13 fantastic designers, do just that. Check them out here.
