What?

 

People’s Momentum

Momentum is a grassroots campaigning network of over 31,000 members, 200,000 supporters and 170 local groups that evolved out of Jeremy Corbyn’s 2015 election campaign. Momentum is mobilising the mass campaigning movement that tries to get Labour into government.

 

Michael will share his experiences in mobilizing new and disenfranchised voters.
