EVAW (The End Violence Against Women Coalition) has launched an ‘activist pack‘ to help anyone who wants to campaign on violence against women and girls find and approach candidates in the 4 May local elections.
On 4 May 2017 there are elections in many parts of the UK, including in Nottinghamshire. Many of those who are elected will have a say in funding decisions and will be well placed to encourage local public services – like the police, health and transport – to prioritise tackling violence against women and girls.
You can use their Activist Guide to help locate candidates and for advice on what to say. They have also created template letters to Local Council candidates and there is a VAWG Factsheet if you need to get hold of local VAWG data for your campaigning.
