Molly views campaigning as an important part of seeking to influence the decision making process within the EU. Initiating or supporting specific campaigns also provides vital opportunities to connect with and involve constituents in pushing for positive change. Molly also believes campaigning supplements her role as an MEP in the European Parliament where she is involved in initiating, developing, scrutinising and voting on policy.
Greens have a long history of campaign-based politics and Molly is keen to continue this historic trend in bringing about change through political activism.
