Layla Moran has joined 50 Members of Parliament from seven political parties to establish a groundbreaking network for cross-party campaigning in Westminster.
The More United MP Network is the latest addition to a fast-changing landscape in the House of Commons and its members have committed to working cross-party in the national interest, no matter who is in power.
The network will tackle ‘issues ignored because of Brexit’ by the emerging cross-party movement of over 150,000 members who share a desire to move Britain forward. Initial campaigns will focus on poverty and homelessness, responsible technology, mental health and urgent climate dangers.
More United members are able to support campaigns through online petitions, surveys and write to your MP initiatives as well as local outreach and lobbying events. Members across the UK are able to work with politicians from all parties through More United campaigns, no matter which constituency they live in and they also have a vote on which MPs to support at election time.
With millions of people signing online petitions there is a clear appetite for using digital technology to engage with politics. By fusing online engagement opportunities with MPs of all parties the group intends to become a significant mass movement with 250,000 members and 100 MPs onboard by the end of 2020.
Commenting on the cross-party group Layla said:
"I was delighted last month to help launch More United – a cross-party group of MPs who want to achieve real change on the domestic crises facing our country, rising above party lines.
"I came into Parliament to get things done for the local residents of Oxford West and Abingdon and sometimes the best way to do that is to work cross-party.
"We want to work together and More United is a network to do that."
