Labour Party Democracy Review

The Labour Party Democracy Review represents an unprecedented opportunity for party members and trade union affiliates to fundamentally reshape the party so that it provides meaningful representation to millions and to implement a socialist, transformative programme.


LOG INTO MY MOMENTUM TO TAKE PART IN THE DEBATE

We want as many members as possible to input into the review. So we’ve launched MyMomentum, an online platform that enables members to generate ideas, debate and nominate key proposals that will make up Momentum’s submission to the review. If you’re a member of Momentum, just check your emails for an activation link  – you’ll have received it on Friday 2nd February or Saturday 3rd February.
