Liberation Networks

Liberation at GSU comes in many forms however the three core aims of this work are to create safe spaces, run campaigns, and educate the community in order to reduce oppression. 

GSU is committed to reducing the barriers faced by our members both inside and outside their university experience. Developing you to talk about systemic discrimination and oppression as well as recognise privilege and internal bias.



Join a Liberation Network

You can join any network you identify with and take part in their campaigns, meetings, and community for free.

Being a member allows you to vote for future chairs, contribute to the work of the network, and get sent updates via email. Memberships run from 1st September - 31st August each year.

You can get your membership:
1. Online via each network's webpage
2. At Students' Union reception in Dreadnought Building, Greenwich and The Dome, Avery Hill
3. At the Welcome Fairs


Follow us on Instagram

On Instagram, you will see all the work from across all the networks at GSU! 

It's a great way to see what going on, get some ideas for campaigns and events, and find opportunities to meet other people!




Liberation Network Organisers

We currently have three Liberation Organisers. These are student staff members responsible for carrying out activities on behalf of the members of Liberation Networks, and you'll see them doing anything from organising events, to getting students involved with campaigns.



Hello, this is Shalmali Jadhav and I work as a Liberation Organizer at GSU. I believe in equal opportunities for everyone. Each and everyone person no matter where they come from or who they are must be presented with equal opportunities and I'll be using my voice for equal rights for everyone at the campus.


My name is Becca and I’m a second-year psychology student. Liberation is important to me as being a queer disabled woman I have experienced my fair share of discrimination and barriers. Liberation matter because I strongly believe that no one should be treated differently or denied access to opportunities just because they are different from the norm. 


Hi, my name is Areeba and I’m studying Cyber Security in Computer Science. Liberation matters to me because it gives me a platform that I can use to listen and support student with any issues or problem they are facing. I would also like to use this platform to raise voice on topics such as, women not being treated equally as men.
