About the event
Citizens Cymru’s first ever Governance of Wales Accountability Assembly on March 17th, 2016.
Hundreds of community leaders from all the constituencies in Wales will be gathering in Cardiff, to meet with the leaders of the four main political parties; Carwyn Jones AM (Labour), Andrew RT Davies AM (Conservative), Leanne Wood AM (Plaid Cymru) and Kirsty Williams AM (Liberal Democrats), seven weeks before polling day.
Citizens UK will be asking the elected representatives to work with them on a series of social justice issues, should the election result in them leading or forming part of the next Welsh Government. They include:
- share with the gathering (briefly) their vision for the nation and why we should vote for their party,
- ensure that Wales remains welcoming to refugees,
- take a fair proportion of 50,000 Syrian refugees over the next 5 years (30,000 more than the UK is currently pledged to take)
- and support families and organisations in Wales who want to resettle Syrians through the community sponsorship route.
Tickets are free and priority will be given to participating member organisations of Citizens Cymru Wales. Participants can sit with those who are from their local area, so please make sure you select a seat in the part of the venue reserved for your constituency or region.
