Warwick Liberation Coalition

WLC logoWarwick Pride doesn’t exist in isolation; we’re part of the wider liberation community at Warwick, committed to taking a truly intersectional approach to liberation. We work closely alongside Warwick Anti-Sexism Society, Warwick Anti-Racism Society, Warwick Enable, Warwick Mind Aware and the part-time SU liberation officers. The previous academic year saw the launch of the Warwick Liberation Coalition, cementing the alliances between the liberation societies, officers, students, and staff, and providing a forum for cross-community discussion and action. The coalition meets termly, when everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. We’ll announce the details of each meeting in Pride’s weekly emails!

Projects which the coalition will be working on over the coming academic year include:

  • Increasing diversity in the curricula
  • Increasing awareness of liberation issues in the personal tutor system
  • Launching an equality charter for clubs and societies at Warwick
  • Campaigning for greater provision for conferences placed at NUS Black Students conference, and NUS Disabled Students conference

If you’d like to be added to the coalition’s mailing list email wlc@warwickpride.org.
