Join communities from across Greater Manchester to the largest non-partisan event ahead of this year's regional elections for the Mayor of Greater Manchester.
Amidst joyful celebrations and powerful stories, we will launch specific priorities for making our families and communities better off.
GM Citizens members ran a summer listening campaign finding out what was putting pressure on our communities and then we prioritised these at our delegates assembly. Our priority areas for our Assembly are:
Fair Work & Child Poverty
Mental Health & Better Services
Clean Air & Transport
We are organising up to a thousand people in attendance to hear the candidates make public commitments to these priorities. We will also be hosting a community iftar after the end of our Assembly and everyone i encouraged to stay and build friendships with each other.
