Claiming our Future is organising its second deliberative event in Galway.
The event will involve discussion on the principles that could guide our approach to income equality, on the income, tax and welfare policies that could be implemented to reduce income inequality and on the local action that could be taken to make progress on this issue.

In this way the most popular ideas will bubble to the top.This is a forum for you to dicuss ideas on line - these ideas are your ideas - they are ideas that we may not agree with - but we are providing you with a framework for that discussion.
