DEAL needs your support!

Disability Equality ACT Labour, the unfunded group working to encourage the Labour Party to comply with the disability elements of the Equality Act 2010, is in the final stages of finalising their legal handbook for branches, CLPs, regions, NEC committees and the NEC. They need fundraising help to get it printed and posted out.

DEAL legal handbook cover image.They will be emailing a copy to every CLP and have been working hard to compile an email contacts list to achieve this. But a printed copy in the hands of branch and CLP chairs would have much greater impact.

Can you help by sharing their fundraising campaign with your branch, CLP and trade union?
