Asian, Arab & Ethnic Minority Network
Black Students Network
Disabilities, Accessibility and Neuro-Diverse Network
Trans, Non-Binary, Intersex, and Gender Identity + Network
Our six Liberation Networks are run by students, for students. The Liberation Networks are a space for marginalised communities to gather, create communities and promote intersectionality. Throughout the year they will run campaigns to promote change at SUBU, BU and beyond. They are each led by a Liberation Officer, who is also a Part-Time Officer at the Union.
The Networks are free to join and all students who self-identify are automatically part of their relevant communities. To self-identify, visit your relevant Liberation Network page and use the self-identify options on the page.
Connect students by creating friendships in a safe and welcoming community
Collaborate with other Liberation Networks to raise awareness and educate
Highlight current issues and empower students to act collectively to create change
Hold the Students' Union and University to account by challenging discrimination and making sure they act with equality
Mark national awareness campaigns
If you are a Liberation Officer, you can find everything you need to know for your role via our Liberation Officer Hub!
