Our Annual Activists’ Day 2017 – Saturday 1st July (London)

This year, our annual Activists’ Day (also known as Local Groups’ Day) will be held on Saturday 1st July at our offices in north London.

If you want to know more about our local groups, how they work, what they do and how to start one – then this is the event for you. We hope you will leave inspired to join your nearest group or start one if there isn’t one near you. Refreshments and a free lunch will be provided. 

The agenda for the day is set out below and, as you can see, we are delighted to be welcoming Profs Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson to talk about the current state of inequality and how it relates to wider social, economic and political debates. 

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-registration for this event is essential as we cannot admit people on the day – and places are limited so please don’t delay in booking your place by emailing info@equalitytrust.org.uk   

We look forward to seeing you!
