Hey there, we are Liberal Youth.

We're a political society in LUU campaigning for people's freedoms. Freedom from torture, death penalty, spying, state intrusion and freedom to own your own home, get help from the government when you need it, live where you want and do what you want to do. Freedom to say f***k the system and visit this page. Just like you. Way to go, you.

Yeah, we're Lib Dems. Don't hold it against us (too much.)

You might be one too.  Don't worry about coming out just yet, there's a support group. We even have T-Shirts! But if you believe in your heart that refugees deserve to be treated with respect, or that we can't be "all in this together" if George Osbourne balances the budget on the backs of the poorest, or that we need more affordable housing, or that the Human Right's Act must remain, or that being IN the EU is crucial then guess what? You are a Liberal! Embrace it. Join us.

Join us you gorgeous thing.

We have regular events. Curry nights. Campaigning evenings. Action Days. Leafleting. Canvassing. MP Q+As. Spirited Discussion evenings. LiberTea coffee mornings. Drinking Liberally nights. Nights out. Trips away. Union campaigns. National demonstrations. Elections. Conferences. It's awesome. Be part of it. 

Who are we?

Leeds Liberal Youth are a student campaigning movement locally and nationally, focusing on student rights and liberal campaigns. Since our creation we have campaigned for better internet access for student homes in Leeds, defended the Human Rights Act at a rally in London, and helped Greg Mulholland's campaign in May '15 - playing a key role re-electing one of 8 Lib Dem MPs. 

What do we do? 

We have a regular schedule of events including campaigning evenings, weekend action days and social events like Pizza and Politics, we're never far from a drink or two with Drinking Liberally and Spirited Discussions. We've held events with Government Ministers and MPs and we've even campaigned for the previous Deputy PM Nick Clegg in Sheffield. It's a great way to gain experience in campaigning and politics and to meet the names you hear in the news. 

What's coming up? 

We have a great lineup events in the coming year, starting with our Spirited Discussions Give it a Go in Old Bar on October 6th at 6.30pm and lunch with Vince Cable as well as regular campaigning for the local elections next year. We are working to elect our candidate Penny Goodman in student area Headingley so every student foot on the ground helps.

We hope you'll join us! 

"The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity."
