what are ways to specfically find those organizations and how can citizens align to ensure those grassroots are not left behind?
Thomas Cormier
01:37:57
Parliamentary Centre is particularly interested in how we can support connecting women’s rights partner groups with elected officials to address policy issues that are importa to better development outcomes and the respect of human rights. There are opportunities to do with via individual MP contact, engagements with relevant committees, but also through selective engagements with women’s caucuses or inclusion caucuses. We’d like ensure that these grassroots voices influence those with the power to take action and to influence the way they engage with citizens.
