This will be a fast-moving event calling upon the Labour Party to adopt Proportional Representation as party policy, with speakers from across the party and wider Labour movement. We will hear about why electoral reform is fundamental to the tasks we face as a party, about the growing support among members, trade unions and the PLP, and how all of us can take action to help us put PR in the next Labour Manifesto.

The event will be outside the security zone. Speeches and discussion will be followed by a drinks reception, with live music from Matt Hill, a.k.a. Quiet Loner, playing songs from his Album: The Battle for the Ballot: Songs and stories from the fight for the right to vote!
