Last year, the Liberal Democrat Federal Policy Committee (FPC) kicked off a consultation on the next steps in refreshing how we talk about our principles and values to meet the current times.
As part of the follow up to that, the FPC is asking members what it means to us to be a Liberal Democrat:
This exercise is important because a strong and identifiable set of values can help bind us together strongly as a party, can help us become more clearly identifiable to voters and potential new members, and can help distinguish us from others when elections come along. We also want to be able to use these principles and values to help us define our policies and help others anticipate what our policy responses might be to different situations.
To give your answers to that question, you can respond to the original consultation (see below). Or sign up for one of the two online consultation sessions coming up this month: Tuesday March 9th 8-9pm and Monday March 15th 12-1pm. If you are interested in attending, please let Alyssa Gilbert know at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent joining details shortly.
