Unprecedented Times' Special 2020 Conference Edition includes articles on slated changes to our party’s rules, the Campaign for Labor Party Democracy, climate change policy, and more. We hope that this issue will give Labor members a useful overview of the debates affecting branch members at this year's NSW Labor Conference.
The Editorial Team would like to acknowledge the hard work rank-and-file members have been doing over the past year to keep our party alive during the pandemic. Unprecedented Times wants to ensure that we emerge from lockdown with a plan to make our party stronger. We need a bottom-up strategy which values the knowledge, skills, and opinions of branch members. It is for this reason that we have created a space to develop and share our ideas.
