Come to the third Croydon Assembly and help write our Manifesto as a part of the national debate on a way forward for society and as a guide for campaigning in the local area.

The massive anti-austerity march in Manchester on October 4, the momentum for democratic change created by the movement that elected Jeremy Corbyn and the support for progressive parties like the Greens shows that real change is possible.

Our policy groups have been hard at work putting together the Manifesto and they will present their proposals on November 7. You can debate them, put forward your own ideas and suggest amendments. A final draft will then go out for consultation before publication.

There’ll be groups on education, welfare & housing, health, the economy, political representation & democracy, refugees, asylum & racism, the environment and international policy.
