Petition campaign resources

Sex Matters is promoting a petition to parliament calling for the government to update the Equality Act 2010 to make clear that sex means sex in the Equality Act. The aim is to get to 100,000 signatures so that we prompt a debate in parliament. The petition will run till 20 April 2023 but we would like to get to 100,000 well before then.

We need as many as people as possible to promote the petition
