Students from across Wales will gather in Cardiff throughout this week for the annual conferences of NUS Wales’ five liberation campaigns.
We start today with the NUS Wales Black Students’ Conference, followed tomorrow by the Students with Disabilities Conference, LGBT+ Conference on Wednesday, Welsh Language Conference on Thursday, and Women’s Conference on Friday.
The conferences will see students debating motions, taking part in workshops, and electing the leaders of their campaigns for the next year.
We’re grateful to Cardiff and Vale College for hosting us throughout the week at their City Centre Campus.
We’ll be updating you throughout the week on NUS Connect, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about what’s going on, and every day, you can find out who’s been elected to lead the liberation conferences.
If you have any concerns or questions throughout the week, please contact NUS Wales Policy and Governance Consultant James Dunn on 07872 128 153 or NUS Wales External Affairs Manager Claire O’Shea on 07584 631 232.
After Women’s Conference on Friday, the annual Reclaim the Night Wales march will be taking place. We’ll be meeting at Yr Hen Lyfrgell in the Hayes, Cardiff, at 7.00pm to make placards and then departing at around 8.30pm.
Reclaim the Night is an international movement demanding an end to sexual violence, street harassment, and victim blaming.
The march is open to people of all genders, but will be led by those who self-define as women. This is a trans* and sex worker inclusive event, and we will not tolerate sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, or ableism.
If you have any concerns or questions, please email Rosie Inman, NUS Wales Women’s Officer, at email@example.com.
