As our campaign has grown since the June 2016 referendum, we have held many different events and meetings  - including our highly successful and well-attended rally at the Labour Party Conference and a fantastic evening event at the Brighton Dome.  Currently we have several initiatives underway, including our Europe Corner stall in New Road outside the Unitarian Church, where we hand out leaflets, collect signatures for petitions, talk to passers-by and share information. It’s all part of our work to be visible, to get Brightonians to support our campaign and make it grow!

Some of our members run a regular club evening: Club Europe Express, at the Rose Hill Tavern. This is a chance to socialise with other Europeans; to exchange views and ideas; and to enjoy music, poetry and other cultural activities.

We are also linking up with numerous other groups that are around the county and beyond: Eastbourne, Newhaven, Lewes, Sevenoaks and more. We aim to change hearts and minds in Sussex and beyond.

If you have ideas for other activities, please contact us!

Upcoming events:


Tue 11 December, 11am onwards

Parliament Square, London

Join SODEM when Parliament votes on the EU Withdrawal 'Agreement'. Take your flags, megaphones and lots of energy. We need to get LOADS of people there to encourage all the Remain MPs to stand strong!

UPDATE
With the vote called off by the PM running scared, we must keep up the pressure! Join Sodem if you can this week to help them continue to make our voices heard.
