Liberation & Community Networks

Imperial College Union has nine Liberation & Community Networks

The term liberation is defined as the seeking of equal status and freedom from all forms of oppression. Historic liberation movements such as civil rights, gay liberation fronts, women's liberation and disability rights campaigns help make our society more inclusive and diverse. Liberation groups today continue to challenge public misunderstanding and social injustices in today's society.

The Liberation and Community Networks are run by students who identify with, ally with, or are interested in each particular group.  So what do the networks actually do? They: 

  • Organise campaigns to tackle particular problems faced by their members
  • Facilitate the building of community amongst their members and wider community
  • Provide a safe space for students that identify with them
  • Are a support network for their members - particular for personal problems related to their identity.

Your Liberation & Community Officers

Liberation & Community Officers are volunteers elected by the student body in our Leadership Elections - they chair their respective Liberation or Community network. You can contact your Liberation & Community Officers below and find out more about what they do!

  • Your Liberation officers (BME, Gender Equality, LGBTQ+, and Disabilities) challenge social injustices and represent marginalised groups to make Imperial more inclusive and diverse.
  • Your Community officers (International, Interfaith, Ethics and the Environment, Mental Health, and Working Class) are representatives at Imperial for students from groups with shared interests or experiences who work to build community and tackle social issues.
