During the last election, Bristol progressives from all walks of life came together to campaign for a more equal, sustainable and democratic future. We played a huge role in delivering progressive wins in many key seats and fundamentally reshaping the narrative of British politics.
However encouraging the election result, we don’t have a progressive government yet. We need individuals and groups who want to make change happen to come together and collaborate, locally. That’s why Bristol Compass members are launching a local group: join us on 24 October from 6.30 to 8.30pm at Unite the Union, Tony Benn House, Victoria Street, Bristol BS1 6AY to find out more and be part of the movement.
Existing and new Compass members will meet and greet and learn about the organisation and its role in the Progressive Alliance. Crucially, we will plot our next moves, getting progressive Bristolians to change politics locally and nationally.
Joining us and speaking at the gathering will be Compass chair Neal Lawson and we’ve also invited progressive local politicians to attend. Tea, coffee and snacks, as well as healthy considerations about how to unseat Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, will all be in abundance at the meeting!
Though a turbulent year, 2017 has unmasked this country’s thirst for change. Compass has and always will be a part of that change. The realm of possibilities is endless – but we can’t do it without you.
