Liberate LUU is a hub filled with events, campaigns, resources, and news for you and your community. Established with a mission to go beyond raising awareness, Liberate LUU embeds liberation in all that we do and inspires everyone to take action. On this page, you’ll find resources tailored for the following liberation groups: Black, LGBTQ+, Trans, Women, Disabled, Working Class, and Asian.
What to expect at Liberate LUU? We hosted a variety of liberation events last year, such as the Liberate LUU Film Festival where students could immerse themselves in good movies and stories that matter around the Black, LGBTQ+, Trans and Women’s identities, struggles and victories. There was also a series of Liberate and Make events, when students could get to know each other in a safe and relaxed space over mindful crafts and meaningful conversations. You should also take a look at the Liberation Library in the Rep Room, where you can access texts by authors from marginalised groups, outside traditional reading lists.
Wanna take it a step further? If you are passionate about providing a voice for marginalised groups on campus, you can join the Liberation and International Student Network (LISN) to lead on liberation issues within the Union, the University and the city of Leeds.
Be educated, be supported, be empowered.
