Corbyn was elected on a wave of hope for a ‘new politics,’ for a more humane, equal, democratic, anti-racist and sustainable society. Now, our challenge is to strengthen the collective solidarity that underpins this movement. In this deliberative workshop we will reflect on hard-won lessons from feminist, anti-racist, union-based and party-based experiences of solidarity building. Together we will identify ideas and approaches to solidarity building across difference that can help us develop a healthier left culture and grow a stronger and larger left movement.
