We know that things are challenging for many right now. Some of us are working on the frontline in hospitals and shops. Some of us are trying to balance working from home with homeschooling our children.
Many of us are missing family and friends.
In these difficult times, it's easy to feel isolated.
Here at the European Movement, we’ve been so inspired by the ways that communities have been coming together through this crisis. We may be stuck at home, but our activism continues!
This National Volunteer Week, here are three things that you can do (from your sofa!) to get involved in our newest campaign calling on the government to extend the transition period in order to focus on COVID-19:
1) Retweet this video message from Michael Heseltine
Our President Michael Heseltine has recorded a powerful video message about the need to extend the transition period in the national interest.
Share the video to amplify his message and help us grow our community!
2) Sign (and share!) the Petition
Our petition telling Boris Johnson to pause the transition period in order to focus on protecting our NHS has generated over 58,000 signatures!
Help us keep the momentum going. If you haven’t already signed, add your name today:
Already signed? Share the petition on social media to help us reach 100,000 signatures:
3) Write to your MP
Writing to your MP is one of the best ways to ensure that your voice is heard. Letters from constituents help MPs understand how people in their constituency feel about an issue, and help inform policy decisions.
We've created a simple tool to help you write to your MP - it only takes two minutes!
4) Chip in to the Crowdfunder
Thank you to everyone who has chipped in to our crowdfunder so far. With your help, we’ve managed to raise over £58,000!
Last year, European Movement activists were instrumental in stopping a No Deal Brexit. This time, the stakes are even higher. But we’ve won this fight once - we can do it again.
Can you chip in to help our activists demand that the government extend the Brexit transition period in order to stop a catastrophic No Deal Brexit?
On behalf of the entire European Movement team, thank you.
