Everything you need to know about liberation at Goldsmiths
'Liberation is the act of working to challenge and reverse the effects of structural oppression in society.'
At Goldsmiths SU, we support five liberation networks, bringing together BME (black and minority ethnic), women, LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer +), trans and non-binary people, and disabled students, to meet others, build networks and work on issues, campaigns and plans.
We believe that all students should feel like they belong and are accepted for who they are. We want students to feel liberated and empowered regardless of their identities, and to have a community that reflects this.
The Welfare and Liberation Officer is the main representative for liberation groups within Goldsmiths SU.
Five Liberation Officers – one for each group – are elected each year, and they help to support and represent these groups within the Union and College. They are:
BME Students' Officer
LGBTQ+ Students' Officer
Trans and Non-Binary Students' Officer
Disabled Students' Officer
Women Students' Officer
We also have a network for each of our liberation groups and an additional network to specifically support international students. Each group has a membership page where you can join for free and they meet once a week. Click below to find out more.
International, BME, LGBTQ+, Trans and Non Binary, Disabled Students and Women's liberation networks!
Liberate Our Union Survey
We want to be the leading Students' Union for liberation. In order to achieve this and to best support students from liberation groups, we need your help in figuring how to do that! So if you're from a liberation group, please fill in our survey here and tell us what you think.
This will be the first stage of a continuous consultation with students from liberation groups. We want to make sure that we are constantly keeping in touch with you and providing you with the services and support you need from us.
