Over the coming months the Lambeth Campaigns Forum will be drawing up the Labour Manifesto for the May 2018 local elections. In preparation Lambeth Momentum invites YOU — the residents, workers, campaigners, community groups and Labour Party members of Lambeth — to a community conference on possible futures for our local government. 

The conference follows on from our successful October event ‘Transforming Lambeth’ and builds on consultation and policy development by Lambeth Momentum members in coordination with local campaigns, community groups, and trade unions. Consultations have focused on six policy areas:

–        Housing 

–        Social Care

–        Education

–        Libraries

–        Local Democracy & Finance

–        The Environment 

Policy documents from consultations will guide workshops on the day, from which a series of proposals for Labour’s 2018 Manifesto will be drawn up. Though the conference is not part of the official Lambeth Labour Manifesto process, the arising proposals will be submitted to the Lambeth Campaigns Forum for consideration. 

We hope that the conference will offer a vision of what a Lambeth, ‘For the Many Not The Few’, could look like, and a testament to the capacity of our community to create credible, egalitarian policies for local government.

Please join us, and help make this event as representative, inspiring and far-reaching as possible. 

 ***************************************************** 

Momentum supports Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party. We know politics and politicians are not for everyone! But with solidarity in our community and with lots of time to listen, talk and learn we believe we can rebuild the country after years of Tory rule. By these means we can build Labour into the transformative governing party of the 21st century.
