38 Degrees members believe that contacting our MPs and telling them what we think is what living in a democracy is all about. It's not only for certain sorts of people, from one or other end of the political spectrum. It's for all of us.
Executive Director 38 Degrees
David Babbs is the founding Executive Director of 38 Degrees. Since 38 Degrees launched in June 2009, it has grown to be an influential campaigning community of over 800,000 UK citizens. It has been credited with several notable campaign successes including the dropping of plans to privatise England's forests in February 2011.
