Momentum’s Inaugural National conference - Building to Win - Saturday 25th March
Inspired by the work of local groups over the last year and the hugely successful The World Transformed fringe festival that took place alongside Labour Party Conference in Liverpool in September, Momentum’s first conference ‘Building to Win’ will take place on Saturday 25th March in Birmingham. The Conference is free and open to all members. Book your tickets here and keep updated by clicking attending on the Facebook event here.
Address: 119 Floodgate Street B5 5SU
The venue will be open for networking and browsing stalls from 10am, and the conference itself will kick off at 11:30am.
John McDonnell MP will be opening the conference along with other guest speakers, followed by participatory workshops led by activists from our movement about how we can transform Labour into a grassroots, democratic Party and build a campaigning force that can win the next general election.

The conference will feature activist training, political education workshops and discussion focused on four key themes:
Transforming Labour - helping people navigate Labour Party structures and discussing how Momentum can continue to support the transformation of Labour into a grassroots, members-led party that offers a real alternative to the status quo.
Helping Labour Win - supporting Labour to mobilise its mass membership and win elections as well as helping equip people with arguments and effective communication techniques to persuade people of our vision.
Building the movement - discussing how we can further root our movement in communities, developing links with people and other grassroots groups to organise throughout the UK and build support for Labour’s policies.
Building Momentum - building capacity within Momentum networks and groups through skills sharing and training. Building Momentum will help us achieve our first three objectives.

Can you contribute to our Solidarity Fund?
Through solidarity tickets, we are raising money to provide a hardship fund for travel. We’re raising money for the solidarity fund to cover travel costs for members who otherwise would not be able to attend. If you can contribute £5 or £10 you’d be helping as many members as possible to join the Conference.
