This society aims to campaign against oppression, persecution and injustice. We are also committed to fundraising for human rights causes. However, passionate, it is a relaxed society open to new ideas and welcomes anyone interested to join!
We meet weekly and our meetings can include discussing around a particular campaign or having human rights speakers talk. Past issues we have covered include; refugees, stop torture, the arms trade, LGBTQ+ rights and women's rights.
Safe space policy:
Our society is committed to creating a safe, tolerant, and inclusive environment. We encourage debate and expect all members to be able to discuss (non harmful) conflicting viewpoints respectfully. All members should use appropriate and respectful language when speaking, and respect others’ point of view when listening.
