This is an update on Transhumanist Party support for Dr Alexander Karran, who is standing as an independent candidate in the election for the UK constituency of Liverpool Walton. Alex is the first Transhumanist to ever face an election on an explicitly Transhumanist platform, and he is doing so in order to raise awareness of Transhumanist approaches to the world’s problems, and of the Transhumanist Party.
Alex’s campaign leaflet is being sent to households in Liverpool. We don’t just want to spread the message in Liverpool however, and we need your help. We want you to help by spreading Alex’s message, to know that political Transhumanism exists, and that we will be moving onward and upward from this promising beginning.
What else can you do to help?
Regardless of where you are in the world, you can join the Transhumanist Party in the UK. You can help us work toward fielding candidates in the future, and to promote Transhumanist ideas and causes. To join the party or donate to the cause, please follow this link:

TPUK monthly newsletter:
The Transhumanist Party in the UK is a very new organisation, still getting itself established, and up until now we have been focussed on getting ready to support Dr Karran’s independent candidacy. From May 2015 however, we will be able to focus on broader goals, and will be keeping our members informed through a monthly newsletter mail-out. Members of the general public will be able to read copies of the newsletter, here in this blog.
So, please do consider joining the party and stepping up to help as a volunteer, but at the very least stay informed by watching this blog for updates, and help out by sharing the latest news with your friends!
