If you want to see change in Brighton & Hove - we'd love for you to join our team. Here's some of the ways you can get involved.

Our ward teams are the key way we organise ourselves. They hold regular meetings where you can meet local greens, discuss issues and plan our election-winning campaigns. You could help deliver leaflets, post on social media, share your expertise or 'canvass' local residents on the doorstep.
