Liberation Council is one of the legislative bodies of student government.
It is responsible for liberation campaigns that represent the views and needs of marginalised students at Exeter, particularly noting those with multiple exclusions or intersecting oppressions.
Liberation Council undertakes liberation campaigns, operates the Wellbeing Information Directory, and ensures the Guild takes an intersectional approach.
The DVPs between them will cast 6 votes en bloc at Guild Council.
In 2015/16 the Intersectionality Officer and Liberation Campaigns Council (now DVP Intersectionality and Liberation Council) collectively agreed that the Liberation Fund should be used to pay the annual subscription to Media Diversified. This is £100 per annum.
This allows the Guild access to articles by authors and academics and colour, so we can make these available to our students to decolonialise our campus and allow a wider range of opinions to flourish.
These materials will be available on the Guild site for all our members to read and reference, in order to assist in reducing the ‘white wall’ effect of a Russell Group University and push towards a greater range of opinion on campus.
Media Diversified can be found on Facebook and Twitter, where they are known as Writers of Colour.
