We've had an absolutely massive 2020 here at Labour First. We helped secure a really positive change in direction for the party with the leadership election and two NEC by-election wins. We moved our whole operation online to respond to the unprecedented situation of the pandemic and lockdown. With our friends at Progress we launched the brilliant new Labour to Win coalition. And in November, Labour to Win’s victories in the NEC elections saw Keir Starmer secure a solid working majority on the NEC.
Next year we need to build on this and take the next vital steps in moving the Labour Party towards government and away from the extremism and antisemitism of the Corbyn years.
We have to fight and win next year’s tranche of internal elections, and for control of CLP AGMs, with the same vigour, but even stronger organisation.
All this costs money, and we rely on our supporters to fund us. It’s hundreds of small and medium sized donations that keep us going. We need to raise £100,000 to carry on at the same level of activity in 2021.
