Eventbrite - Grassroots Campaigning Skills for Activists


Events like these are really valuable for all our members and staff, but they cost money to set up. Those of you that are already generous enough to give money in donations expect your gifts to be spent on campaigns and campaign material to help us achieve our shared aims. That's why wed really appreciate a small donation of £5 to cover our running costs, so that we can continue to spend our regular donations on the active campaigning that is so desperately needed.
