At Progressio we know how important the right to vote and have your voice heard is. Democracy is not something that should be taken for granted. Our experience working in countries where political representation is often unequal and the ability to vote freely is not a reality has taught us that we must speak up.
In the run up to the General Election in May our supporters wrote to over 500 Prospective Parliamentary Candidates to find out where they stood on inequality, marginialisation and climate change. They wanted to ensure that, if elected, the candidates would prioritise these issues and work for a fairer world for all.
