The Returning Officer for NUS Liberation Conference has announced the winners in the elections. At Liberation Conference this year delegates elected a Liberation Campaign Committee as well as vacant places on the Liberation Steering Committee.
In our Liberation Conference, a committee is elected to support the VP Liberation and Equality in delivering on Liberation Campaigns. These members facilitate and sustain the Liberation Student Campaigners Network for each liberation group, where students, sabbs, and SUs can share with, learn from, and support each other in their work.
There were five positions available one from each of our Liberation caucuses representing Black*, Disabled, LGBT+, Trans and Women students.
*Black is an inclusive term NUS uses to denote people of African, Arab, Asian and Caribbean heritage

We also have the Liberation Steering Committee. These committee positions are all about making sure students are an active part of decision making at NUS. Our democracy committees lead our thinking on new models of democracy and how we implement these at NUS. They oversee our conferences and processes for generating ideas from students and students unions. They make sure that our democracy runs efficiently and is constantly evolving, incorporating the latest thinking on participatory democracy, restorative justice and collective care
