Policies & Campaigning
Leeds Green Party cares about the wellbeing, health and livelihoods of Leeds residents, and we believe change is needed across a range of issues for the common good.
The pages below outline our policies on some key issues.
We work with local groups and organisations to help campaign for these policies. You can find links to these at the bottom of this website. If you’re campaigning on these issues and would like to see if we can help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To keep up-to-date with our work promoting these policies, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
