Curious about where your MP stands on Darfur and genocide? Want to urge him or her to take action? Good news: MPs DO care about what their constituents have to say. You’re the one voting – if you can prove that policies on Darfur and genocide will influence your decision, your MP may just be convinced to take action!
The best way to engage your MP is through a face-to-face meeting. MPs MUST oblige when a constituent requests a meeting, so you have nothing to lose! Check out our “Effective Meetings with Decision-Makers” document for tips on making your meeting as productive as possible.
Other ways to engage your MPs office are letters, phone calls, or emails. Presenting an MP with a petition from constituents is a great way to display volume of support. Finally, consider inviting your MP to attend a Stand event, speak to students, or participate in a roundtable debate with other MPs or election candidates.
