Now is a great time to get involved with TSN, as there are lots of ways for you to get involved and help set up the network. In addition to the local groups that have started up, there are also national working groups, each with a group of people around the country, which are working on one specific thing.
We want to encourage people to get involved at this time, so if you are interested in TSN and would like to get active, feel free to e-mail a working group and see how you can help.
Here is the list of groups that are currently set up, and how you can contact them. We’ll update the list as we go on. If you have an idea for something not listed here, feel free to e-mail us at our general contact point: email@example.com
Immediate Support for Dale Farm. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Dale Farm still needs our support, there are still residents living there, with nowhere else to go. Keep up to date by checking the Dale Farm website and find out what needs doing with the e-mail above.
Finance and Fundraising. (tsn-finance [at] lists.noflag.org.uk)
This is pretty self-explanatory, we are a new group, with no money and need to get some!
The media working group produces press releases and stories to try and keep Roma, Gypsy and Traveller issues in the media as well as giving interviews, responding to media requests and doing TSN publicity.
Outreach and Publicity. (tsn-outreach [at] lists.noflag.org.uk)
Making contacts with and spreading information between groups and individuals who TSN can work with. Organising talks and workshops to raise awareness and support.
The Outreach and Publicity group is organising a Traveller Solidarity Tour across the UK throughout March.
Legal. (tsn-legal [at] lists.noflag.org.uk)
The Legal working group coordinates fighting eviction and discrimination through legal channels and providing legal support. Within the remit of the Legal working group is: pursuing legal challenges, arrestee support, legal observation, and hopefully in the future knowing lots about planning law etc.
