About us and our aims

The European Movement exists to promote European values of peace, prosperity, and international cooperation. We are the branch of the European Movement UK for the City of Leicester and the Counties of Leicestershire, and Rutland. Our aim now is to campaign against a no deal Brexit by making the economic, security, environmental and social arguments for staying as close to the  EU as possible.  

• We welcome all pro-Europeans regardless of their political party affiliation.

• We aim to increase our network of pro-Europeans in politics, business, academia and the general public.

• We will support initiatives which promote diversity and make EU and non-EU nationals feel welcome in our community
