MEND Birmingham: Get Out and Vote (GOAV) 2021 awareness session with MAB and MSH

MEND Birmingham in partnership with MAB and MSH hosted a session exploring the importance of voting in the local Mayoral and Police Crime Commissioner elections.
The team discussed the Get Out And Vote (GOAV) Campaign and how it supports an otherwise marginalised community to interact with the political process, and how they can get involved highlighting the need for the Muslim Vote.
A recent study showed that over 40% of Muslims feel no party represents them well enough to support or prefer. This shows that political parties still have a long way to go to fully engage with Muslim communities.
Get Out And Vote gives political parties and candidates the ability to meaningfully engage with these communities in order to understand the issues impacting those they seek to represent.
