Please note - details of where to meet will be emailed to you upon registration.

During this year's general election campaign it is critical that our progressive voice is heard, be it on the treatment of refugees, addressing the cost of living, electoral reform, decarbonising our economy or promoting social cohesion.  

We will be meeting at 18:00 leafleting and following this will be meeting for a social. You can help reach hundreds of voters with the Green message, and help raise Green voice across Oxford.

Having just had  successful election results in Oxford City we are now turning our attention to an Oxford City by-election determined to keep up green momentum.

Due to illness beloved Green councillor Al Morris has had to step down. We are determined to keep his seat. We are lucky tohave the brilliant Kate Robinson standing for the Marston city council byelection. Kate is a local librarian, co-founder of the popular community garden project and an dedicated Green.

Oxford currently has eight Green Party Councillors. They're already making a real difference. In the last year, Greens have:

  • Pushed the city council to adopt a pioneering policy on trans rights.
  • Secured a commitment from the Council to roll out a scheme of free period products.
  • Been at the heart of efforts to clean up transport - pushing for low traffic neighbourhoods and better active travel infrastructure.
  • Persuaded the Council to call for the government to allow councils to control private sector rents.
  • Got the City Council to call for Thames Water to clean up its act on pollution, and called for water to be taken into public ownership.

We are determined to ensure that Oxford Green voice continues to be held loud and we keep Al's seat. There will be a briefing before the campaigning session so whether you've never campaigned in an election before, are a canvassing expert or anything in between, your time will be incredibly valuable.
