Alex Phillips our new MEP with our 1st Green MEP, Caroline Lucas
Thank you! Alexandra Phillips was elected as our next Green MEP in the South East. Can you support us to cover the costs of this winning election?
Alex Phillips stood as our lead candidate to continue the work Caroline Lucas and Keith Taylor. We are urgently needed in Europe to fight against climate change, stand up for refugees and tackle inequality.
The two main parties don’t support remain. They don’t support free movement of people. Donate Today – Yes to Europe. No to Climate Change.
Thanks to our generous donors, we have already raised £5,000 for the deposit in deposit bonds, £5,000 in our crowd funding appeal and £11,000 here.
We printed a Freepost leaflet delivered to every household in SE England, 300,000 leaflets delivered by our supporters and recruited temporary staff to build a big campaign across the region, so that every voter knew why they should vote Green.
We need to raise another £15,000 to cover the bills for the leaflets we printed that persuaded 340,000 people to vote Green.
So please give what you can now.Donate
The South East Green Party is one of the biggest regions in the UK. We currently have around 7000 members and supporters. We’re also contesting more seats than ever before, but we still face considerable challenges; outside Brighton and Oxford we’ve not won more than one or two seats on any council.
What we now need to do is build the capacity of our local parties across SE England to win elections against the well-organised operations of other parties. We need to engage more volunteers, raise more funds, and work together to target winnable seats across the region.
In different parts of SE England we have real expertise in local parties: we have great canvassing scripts, useful leaflets, online campaigning sites, press relations, fund raising expertise, and so on. So how do we build on these skills and maximize them to expand our reach and bring about more election successes?
The South East Green Party is seeking funds to keep employing our regional field officer. She is responsible for getting more Greens elected across the SE. Then we want to raise more funds to employ a local support worker who will work with local parties in capacity building, including finding and engaging more volunteers, raising more funds, improving skills, and planning campaigns.
We are asking for regular monthly donations to cover the payments to these development workers. Please chip in what you can afford.Donate
