The Liberation Conference brings together student activists from NUS Liberation campaigns to build policy and discuss issues affecting students from Liberation groups. NUS Liberation campaigns support and fight for the rights of Black*, Disabled, LGBT+, Trans and Women students. Any student who self-defines into a listed liberation group at Wolverhampton University can nominate themselves to be a delegate. You can nominate yourself to be a delegate and run as a candidate in the Make your Mark Election and NUS National Conference elections, you will need to nominate yourself in these elections separately, but all roles will be elected at the same time.
This role is voluntary and you must attend the duration of the conference (including time for travelling to and from the location, unless it is taking place online) as well as briefing prior to the conference and debriefing after.
There are six positions available to attend this conference:
- One Black* Student
- One additional place for a Black* Woman Student
- One Trans Student
- One LGBT+ Student
- One Disabled Student
- One Woman Student
*the NUS use Black to mean students from African, Asian, Arab and Caribbean heritage. All of these delegates must self-define in their respective category.
