In the current political terrain, what are the most effective routes to change at a local level? For some on the Labour left it's building left power within their CLP. For others, it's getting involved in community campaigns or social movements. And for many it will be a combination of the two. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the limits and possibilities of both parliamentary and extra-parliamentary organising, identifying the most effective political interventions we can make in our communities right now.
