The Regional Democracy Think Tank for West Yorkshire

Leafletting the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Meeting

Message chalked on the pavement outside WYCA meeting, reading "How might devolution be more democratic?"

In 2016 we went to two West Yorkshire Combined Authority meetings. First just to sit in and listen to what happened. The second time, Ed Carlisle and Alex Schafran leafleted people going into the meeting, and chalked questions on the pavement outside including "How might devolution be more democratic?".

By all accounts people going into the meeting took it positively, and the staff were pleased that anyone cared enough to go to the trouble!

Afterwards Alex asked Will West Yorkshire have the courage to make Devolution Democratic?.
