Manifesto and Hustings
A range of local organisations including Galway City Community Network, Galway City Partnership, Galway Traveller Movement, Amach LGBTI+, Cope Galway, the Bridge Project, the Disability Federation of Ireland, Access for All and the Galway Anti-racism Network are working collaboratively to ensure that equality is at the heart of local representation.
By adopting the three values underpinning the manifesto developed at a national level by the Community Platform – community, decency, participation – the #EqualityVotesGalway Taskgroup have developed this manifesto calling on all local candidates to ensure equality is at the heart of their representation.
- We want a local government that VALUES DECENCY. This includes progressing decent work, decent accommodation, decent transportation, and decent services for all in a healthy environment. Local government workplaces should be inclusive and reflective of the wider communities they serve.
- We want a local government that VALUES COMMUNITY. This means supporting community, responding to diversity, combating inequality, and fostering creativity
- We want a local government that VALUES PARTICIPATION. This means making decisions with the meaningful involvement of and for the benefit of people who experience inequality and poverty
