Get to know your MP
Your local MP is your link to parliament. They influence decisions which affect the future of the world’s poorest people.
And it works. Through letters and meetings with MPs, CAFOD supporters have already grabbed ministers’ attention and changed government policy. We’ve helped secure tough laws to cut carbon emissions and tackle climate change, and to hold UK companies accountable for bribery carried out by their employees anywhere in the world.
Like with any relationship, getting to know your MP means keeping in contact, by writing to them and joining with others to meet them. When you meet your MP, campaigners across England and Wales will be meeting their MPs too. Together, you’re a force to be reckoned with.
- Don't worry about not being an expert. Chances are your MP isn't either. Armed with CAFOD's briefings and background, and your conviction and passion, you'll be a force to be reckoned with.
