Craftivism for policy change

The Leeds Craftivists group meet monthly on Zoom to be creative together and make change happen through their craft. In March it was all about policy change through the CEE Bill and we heard from MP Alex Sobel. Thank you for all who joined us at this event.

The CEE bill is a vital and groundbreaking bill currently going through parliament. Leeds MP Alex Sobel will be joining us as he has been key in getting the legislation as far as it has got but we all need to play our part in showing our support. So on 1st March join us to learn about the bill and take some encouraging and creative actions in support.

You can find out more about the bill on the CEE Bill Alliance website.
