In little more than four weeks’ time Jeremy Corbyn will reach the first anniversary of his landslide victory in the Labour leadership contest.
The last 11 months have seen huge changes in the Labour Party, at every level. The enormous rise in party membership means that while Labour has been transformed at the top, it also looks a lot different at a grassroots level too.
We will run a special series of stories to mark one year on since Corbyn’s election and we will track how his leadership has changed the Labour Party.
So we want to hear from you.
If you hold a position in your Constituency Labour Party (CLP), or are an active member locally, then please get in touch.
We want to build a better understanding of life for CLP members and officers. Over the next few weeks, we want to hear what is really going on at a grassroots level.
Has there been a significant increase in membership in your local party? Has there been an increase in canvassing – or has more energy been consumed in internal discussion? Are more people now attending meetings? And has there been a noticeable change in morale among members? Whether it is meetings, debates or any other big changes, we want to hear what has happened.
If you can help, please email me with the subject line “A year of Jeremy Corbyn” at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and party position (if you have one). No-one will be quoted without their permission. Thank you.
“The Labour Party is changing and growing. We are now an anti-austerity party committed to investing in people and communities. With 540,000 members and more joining every day, we are once again a mass party and the biggest in Europe.
We need to use the energy, enthusiasm and ideas you and all our members have to turn our mass movement into an electoral force that can beat the Tories.
But, to do this we need to win this leadership campaign so we can go on to rebuild and transform Britain – so no one and no community is left behind.”
