Your presence would be greatly appreciated. You may also find that your colleagues or others you know would be interested or suited for this event. This is a cross party initiative with 6 speakers from the Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties. Parliamentarians, faith leaders, community leaders and media have been invited. This event will be of particular interest to women and youth.

The Parliamentarians will provide their unique stories and personal perspectives by discussing how they entered parliament, how faith has influenced them, whether faith has any role in Parliament and what the future holds for people of faith entering politics. Keynote addresses will be followed by a Q&A.

Lunch will be served.
