Greater Manchester Law Centre- who, what, why, how to get involved @Gmlawcentre

Climate Emergency Manchester is going to publish a directory of groups working for a better world. We’re calling it the “Strawberry Snapshot.” The leads on this project are marion@climateemergencymanchester and marc@climateemergencymanchester.

One group we approached was the Greater Manchester Law Centre. They kindly replied very quickly. Here’s what they said, and below that, the basic info that will appear in the directory.

“We always welcome people joining our campaigns volunteer team – to do this, they can email development@gmlaw.org.uk asking to join the campaigns team. We send out short emails periodically with ways volunteers can contribute to and amplify our campaigning. They can also follow our newsletter for news and opportunities here.”

  1. Well done. Broadening/widening struggle can draw in more support and increase the opposition to bureaucracy across the board. An old trade union principle. Best wishes.
