Hello and a warm welcome to all of you who are thinking about joining UWE Labour Society in 2019. 

As the Labour Party is a broad church, we are too. The Labour Society at UWE is a democratic organisation committed to working productively and constructively towards promoting Labour values and bringing together like-minded individuals.

We hold debates and social events, invite guest speakers, and campaign for the Labour Party locally. Events and meetings will be posted on our Facebook page and through email updates.

Over the course of the year, it is our aim to encourage active political debate and involvement at UWE and beyond. We campaign for Labour Candidates in various wards and constituencies in South Gloucestershire and Bristol. We will work with a range of other organisations, from both within the university and out of it, to attempt to bring the value of social justice and fairness to UWE, and also work towards promoting those values locally.

We have regular socials, such as nights out across Bristol, as well as pub trips and whatever our members fancy doing. We are also hoping to organise socials with other Labour groups around Bristol, such as the Bristol University Labour Students. Membership is £3, which will help fund our campaigning and society events throughout the year. Join today!
