What is People Power Brum?

We are a growing community of ACTIVE CITIZENS in Birmingham, determined to REINVENT DEMOCRACY for the 21st century, and return POWER to the PEOPLE.

We are supporting EVERYDAY HEROES across the city to stand for election as INDEPENDENT candidates in the Council elections taking place on Thursday 3rd May.

We want to eventually stand ONE candidate for EVERY available seat, win a PEOPLE’S MAJORITY on the Council, and build a government, and a city, that truly works for ALL.

I believe national party politics gets in the way of working together at the local level. As an independent I have no agenda, other than to serve you.
