We live in a democracy and this gives each of us two options to express our opinion to inform our Government’s decisions;  

One is to write to your Local Councilors or/and MP – if you don’t have their name or email address – you can find it here; . 

The other is when you vote, whether it be for your local councilor or your MP. For this responsibility, we suggest you consider researching each candidate’s party policies (they’re on line) and assess how your vote will impact on the ‘Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor’.

Please keep us posted; let us know of questions you have asked or offers of support you have made in your community; shops, councilors, charities, friends etc.   Your name will remain confidential.

And finally, here is a link to the free and complete YouTube film – ‘The Letter’    Please share it.

Be the difference you want to see!

Cath Butland and all the team.
