Event description

Talking to your MP can help bring about change

Those of us concerned about climate change, the treatment of people seeking asylum or any number of other important issues want to see positive change. And to achieve that change we are willing to try a lot of different strategies- attending large events , joining in social media campaigns or other forms of mass mobilisation. But in a democracy like ours, a more mundane, but still effective avenue for change is open to us – sharing our views with our local MP.

Part of an MP’s role is to be aware of the concerns of their local constituents. After all, they need our votes to keep their job. And MP’s tell us that hearing from ordinary people, not just the paid up lobbyists or usual advocacy groups, has an impact. It is something they still take seriously.

But not all us have experience in contacting our MP and some of us might feel nervous about doing so.

Building on the Writing to your MP workshop, the Uniting Advocacy team have put together an online one-hour training module: Meeting with your MP.

The training will be led by different members of the Uniting Advocacy Team.

Why not invite a friend or other members of your church, or community group to join in as well?
