Citizens:mk invites you to its
GREAT GET TOGETHER IFTAAR
and hopefully hearing from MK’s new MPs
Friday 16th June 2017, 7.30-10.30pm
Campbell Park Pavilion, Milton Keynes MK9 4AD.
The aim is to celebrate MK’s unity and diversity by sharing Iftaar in the middle of Ramadan. We will break the Muslim fast together, in a spirit of solidarity…and some of us will have a go at fasting all day from sunrise to sunset, some for the first time, to show we know how it feels.
Inspired by The Jo Cox Foundation, this event has a Vision to build new relationships across Milton Keynes regardless of individuals’ voting behaviour at the General Election on 8th June. Instead of hearing form parliamentary candidates before the election (as originally planned for 23rd May), we plan to hear from MK’s newly-elected MPs talking about their visions for MK’s future.
At this event, some of our members will present personal stories relating to justice, inclusion and welcoming newcomers to Milton Keynes. The MPs can talk about how they plan to uphold these and what other priorities they will work on if re-elected to Parliament.
