On Monday 12th July CEM will launch a directory of campaigning groups and resources. It will have info about mostly environmental and social justice, but if you think you belong in there, get in touch, via firstname.lastname@example.org
To whet your appetites, we are featuring groups who have already given their answers. Here’s the answers we got from the Manchester branch of “Make Votes Matter”.
