Black Votes Matter Conference 6pm-9pm 11th July 2019 Hornsey

Black Votes Matter

We hope to draw your attention to the upcoming conference ‘Black Votes Matter’ taking place at the West Indian Cultural Centre, Clarendon Road, Hornsey on the 11th July 2019 from 6.00 to 9.00pm.

Participants include Gary Yong of the Guardian Newspaper;  Exec. Director of the Equality Trust Dr. Wanda Wyproska; Vice-Chair of the Electoral Reform Society Justina Cruikshank and Activist Olalekan Odedeyi.

Many in the BAME Communities are concerned about the rise of extreme political views and its effects.

Make Votes Matter is a single-issue campaign for Proportional Representation in the House of Commons and encourages all parties, candidates and MPs to support PR. It does not endorse any party or candidates and takes no position on other political issues.

Frequently during our campaigning, we have heard concerns that the introduction of Proportional Representation into the Parliamentary System will increase or legitimise these extremes.

The ‘Black Votes Matter’ event is intended to allay those fears and show that contrary to this it will increase representation by minorities, BAME, women, disabled or otherwise apparently disadvantaged people.

By broadening the electoral system to enable a wider section of the community to be elected and more voices will be heard.  Those communities who feel they are not listened to or are by-passed by the social system can be fairly represented.

The fact that this is now not the case has led directly to the current political situation.

Attendance is free but must be booked via Eventbrite at www.makevotesmatter.eventbrite.co.uk

We hope that this is of interest to some of your presenters and fits your programming.

This country is in crisis and it is most important that everybody’s voice is heard.
