Council leaders, Police Area Commander and other power-holders will be asked for action on this year’s campaigns: Fair Work (in zero hours contracts), Refugees Welcome (community sponsorship and school support) and Primaries & Police (police presence in primary schools).
The power of Citizens:mk comes from its diverse communities and the size of its turnout at the annual Assembly. Everybody counts. Booking your place is easy, click here. Please attend.
With the European elections approaching, and strong feelings about Brexit in the air, Citizens:mk wants to promote dialogue and trust between people who have opposing views. We are organising a special ‘Weaving Trust’ event at Cornerstone 5.30-7pm on Thursday 16th May, one week before the European Election.
We want individuals from Citizens:mk member organisations to bring to the event one person who voted opposite to the way they did in the 2016 EU Referendum. This event is open only to people who are accompanied by someone who voted the other way, and both labelled accordingly.
At the event, participants will be asked to take up positions in two circles of facing chairs around the cloisters - Leave facing Remain voters - and have a series of short conversations about their current thoughts and feelings about living in MK today.
If you are interested, you can sign up at the Assembly on 25th April...or follow the link from www.citizensmk.org.uk the following week.
To make change, we need power.
We develop relational power by sharing self-interest through 121 meetings with followers, peer leaders and power holders.
We develop leaders and build a broad-based alliance, ready to make change through a process of research, action and evaluation.
