NUS Wales LGBT+ Campaign elects Hannah Stewart and Jasper Williams

Wednesday 27-04-2016 - 14:17

At the NUS Wales LGBT+ conference in Cardiff today, students have elected Hannah Stewart as their LGBT+ Officer (Women’s Place) and Jasper Williams as their LGBT+ officer (Open place) 2016/17.

Today’s conference was the largest ever, with the most motions submitted, and the highest number of Unions represented.

The LGBT+ Campaign is the autonomous campaign for all students in Wales who self-define as LGBT+. The campaign represents those students’ interests as part of NUS Wales and campaign locally and nationally on issues that affect them.

The role of the LGBT+ Officers is to act as the campaign’s figureheads, serving on a part-time basis for a year, and sitting on NUS Wales National Executive Committee.

Speaking after the election, the new officers outlined their campainging priorities for the year ahead.

At the NUS Wales LGBT+ conference, students debated motions on, among others, supporting rural students' unions and representation of Ace and Trans students, took part in a community politics workshop with Edith Whitehead from Bite The Ballot, and elected their leaders.

Those elected to the NUS Wales LGBT+ Campaign committee were:

  • Steering Officer - Sarah Lynn
  • Committee member (Open) - Carl Tubbs
  • Committee member (Bi* place) - Daisy Welham
  • Committee member (Trans* place) - Alexander Grant
  • Committee member (FE place) - Austen Wright
  • Committee member (Women's place) - Ruth Lewis

Tomorrow, we move on to the NUS Wales Welsh Language Campaign conference.
