#LevelUpLibDems is go

We are pleased to announce on behalf of Lib Dem Women and the Campaign for Gender Balance our 2017 General Election initiative for women candidates - #LevelUpLibDems.

Whether you're old or new, experienced or not, and wherever you are in the UK now is the time to support women candidates in winnable seats. To find your nearest one, all you have to do is go to the #LevelUpLibDems map, pick your candidate and fill out a short form about how you will support her: tiny.cc/leveluplibdems

LDW and CGB work tirelessly to get women candidates to elected: we think members should have the choice to spend their time campaigning to give the party a greater chance to 'level up' the gender balance of our parliamentary team. 

The snap election selections have put the party in a stronger position to achieve this than it has ever been in before. 

Once you decide which candidate you want to help #LevelUp, don't forget to shout about it! With less than a month left the key to success is getting the word out and getting volunteers to these seats.

Please follow @LevelUpLibDems on twitter and tweet your support to your candidate, post on facebook on your page and in Lib Dem groups or send this link on to your fellow local party members and friends.

Help us achieve critical mass in these seats and show that as a party we're serious about giving the support we need to see our women elected.

Best wishes,

Flo Clucas, Alice Thomas, Candy Piercy, Julia Cambridge and Kat Bavage
