Oxford Labour is one of the most active local Labour parties in the country. We cover the constituencies of Oxford East and Oxford West & Abingdon. In the East, Anneliese Dodds, the former MEP for South East England was elected in 2017 with a majority of over 25,000.
We hold regular meetings with political discussion, guest speakers, city and county councillors, and Anneliese. We host social events, including dinners and receptions, with Gordon Brown, David Miliband, Owen Jones and Alan Johnson as recent visitors. We also have active youth, student and women's groups.
Campaigning is at the heart of everything we do. We work for social justice at home and abroad, good quality public services, and local priorities such as decent housing, a sustainable environment, improved provision for cycling, and better facilities for young and old.
We hope you enjoy our website and if you have any questions then please get in touch with us here.
