Write to your MP!
Your MP (Member of Parliament) is the person who represents you and other people in your area in Parliament.Parliament makes and changes laws in the UK.
You have the right to contact your MP, and your MP has to listen to you – it's their job.
So write to your MP and ask them to support Children are Unbeatable! This is one of the most important things you can do to help change the law and make a real difference!
You can use this website to write to your MP.
Your letter doesn't have to be long or complicated. Here are some ideas about what you could say:
- Explain that you support the Children are Unbeatable! Alliance, and that you want the law to change to make it illegal for adults to hit or hurt children.
- Say why you think the law should change. For example: because hitting children hurts them, because it's not fair that children are less protected than adults, because children's human rights should be respected, because the United Nations says the UK should change the law... Read more here.
- Ask them to join the Children are Unbeatable! Alliance to show that they support us.
If you write to your MP, they should reply to you. If they don't reply, you can write again asking them why they haven't answered.
If you write to your MP, let us know, and tell us what they say!
