Liberal Democrat Society
The Southampton University Liberal Democrat Society aims to promote liberalism within the Student Union.
The society raises the awareness of Liberal Democrat values and policies through campaigning for the success of Southampton-based Liberal Democrat candidates standing in local, general and European elections.
We also arrange social events for like-minded, liberal students throughout the university..
About Liberal Democrat Society
We run regular socials and meetups, and we run issue-specific campaigns at the University. Some of our key campaigns last year were fighting period poverty, homelessness and carbon footprints. We also campaign in elections alongside Southampton Liberal Democrats. May's local elections saw three Liberal Democrat students run for council and a fourth stood in a council by-election this September. One of our parliamentary candidates last year was also a final year student!
All are most welcome, and there is no obligation for those who attend socials to get involved with campaigning (or vice versa)! We aim to be as inclusive and welcoming as possible, and we have a diverse range of members with varying levels of involvement. Why not give it a try?
