Invitation: In conversation with Preet Gill MP, Shadow Secretary of State for DFID
We are delighted to invite you for a discussion on international development with Preet Gill MP, Shadow Secretary of State for DFID, as we launch our new awareness raising campaign with Labour members.
The talk will take place on Tuesday 15th September, 6-7pm, online, and be chaired by Libby Smith, LCID Exec member and Coalition for Global Prosperity COO.
Hosted by us and our friends at the Coalition for Global Prosperity, this conversation with Preet Gill will explore how best we should tackle the global challenges of our time, what the role of UK aid should be, Labour’s vision for international development and how to create a safer, healthier and better off world for us all. You will also be provided with the opportunity to ask the Preet your own questions.
Invitation: Panel Discussion on Labour and Humanitarianism
A reminder that before then we have another talk, a special panel discussion on humanitarianism in today’s world, which will take place on Thursday 10th September from 6pm-7.30pm online. Speakers include Stephen Doughty MP, Shadow FCO & DFID Minister and LCID VP and speakers from Syria, Bosnia and Rwanda and Robin Cook’s former advisor David Clark.
I’m also pleased to announce that we are in touch with the World Uyghur Congress to secure a Uyghur activist to speak on the panel as well.
