Speaker Series 2020
On the fourth Thursday of September, October and November, we’ve organised three events with high profile speakers from across the Labour movement. Each event will be hosted online and be a chance for members to discuss politics, the party and the future of Britain in a post-COVID world.
Joining us for our first event in September is Shadow Foreign Secretary, Lisa Nandy MP. Lisa has been the MP for Wigan since 2010 and stood and was nominated by this CLP in the recent Leadership Election. Lisa has been to North Warwickshire previously and spoke passionately about her work on towns and the Centre for Towns which is very relevant to our CLP.
Our second event in October is with Councillor Sharon Thompson, Cabinet Member for Homes and Neighbourhoods in Birmingham. Sharon is a first-class campaigner and Councillor, leading the fight against homelessness and rough-sleeping across Birmingham through innovation and Labour values.
Our third and final event is with Andrew Scattergood, Regional Secretary of the FBU in the West Midlands and newly elected Co-Chair of Momentum. Andrew is a committed local activist, having previously supported our campaigns locally. Andrew stood on a platform to be elected to Momentums NCG of democracy in the movement.
We’re suggesting a £5 donation for each event but please donate whatever you can afford, and if you can’t donate, don’t worry, book a free ticket instead.
