Applications to be part of Leeds University Union’s Liberation Coordinator team are open from today (Monday 30 March) until Sunday 10 May.
The Liberation Coordinators (LibCos) are a team of students appointed to take a lead on liberation issues within Leeds University Union (LUU), at the University and within the City of Leeds.
The roles exist because students at a Better Union Forum in 2013 told us that they wanted marginalised groups to have a voice and a position within LUU’s structures, and for liberation issues to be embedded in all we do. Between the team, they represent students who identify into one or more of the liberation groups: BAME, Disabled, LGBTQ+ and Women.
This year, our LibCo’s have worked on the history months, Give and Take events and one LibCo, Laila Fletcher, has now been voted in to be the Equality and Diversity Officer for 2020/21.
Take a look at some of the work this year’s LibCo’s did on the history month’s here, including a Black History Month Campus Map, Disability History Month Zine, and an LGBTQ+ Guide to Leeds.
Due to the current restrictions in place for the coronavirus outbreak, interviews for the positions will take place online.
