Natasha Fowler-Ekar, Equality and Liberation Officer at Leeds University Union, said:
“Last month we launched our Liberate LUU campaign, which is all about embedding Liberation in all that we do at LUU. The mural is a physical example of our commitment to living Liberation, which students, university staff and colleagues will be able to view every day.”
Andy Harding, Store manager at Co-op Leeds University franchise store, added:
“We’re so proud to be able to celebrate such an influential and inspiring member of the local community. We hope that this fantastic display demonstrates Co-op’s commitment to supporting and celebrating local heroes and our promise to continue campaigning for race diversity, inclusivity and equality.”
