National Democracy Week

LGBT Consortium is very proud to be involved in the inaugural National Democracy Week, which takes place between 2-8 July.

National Democracy Week is a week-long celebration of democracy in society, including events, talks and activities, offering an opportunity to celebrate progress and champion future democratic participation in this historic Centenary year of Suffrage.

As well as being part of the National Democracy Week Council, LGBT Consortium will have a range of resources and webinars available for Members aimed at increasing understanding of how to take part in decision making, both in your local community and nationally.
