One of the main purposes of the STAR network is campaigning to improve the legal rights and access to opportunities of displaced people in the UK. Our campaigns group meet on a weekly basis and organise events, campaigns, fundraisers and protests. As part of STAR campaigns you will participate in deciding which national and local campaigns STAR Leeds want to focus on for the year, help design and run events, mobilise the student body for campaigns and actions, suggest and plan fundraising or educational events, go on trips, work with and support other local organisation’s, and much more. Previous years campaigns have focused on pressuring the University to improve the accessibility of higher education for displaced young people; lobbying the government to end indefinite detention, and the ban on asylum seekers right to work.
