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 101 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 stand ONE candidate for EVERY available seat, win a PEOPLE’s MAJORITY on the Council, and then build a government, and a city, that truly works for ALL.

Panel 1

The People’s Pledge

All of our candidates are taking the ‘People’s Pledge’:

“If elected, I will return POWER to the PEOPLE, by making Birmingham the first city in the world to implement LIQUID DEMOCRACY*, where everyone is included and empowered to drive society FORWARD.”
