#BLACKLIVESMATTER / NUA STUDENTS' UNION STATEMENT

As an independent and autonomous organisation we feel it is important to show our support of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

At NUA Students’ Union we are committed to supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and stand in solidarity with our black student community.

You will be well aware of the protests over the past few days in the USA, UK and elsewhere following the death of George Floyd whilst in police custody in America.

Brutality towards Black people, hatred, racism, inequality and injustice cannot be condoned.

Discrimination against Black communities is sadly evident around the world, including in the UK, and it is a responsibility of universities to fight to eradicate racism and provide a safe space for all students, regardless of their background and ethnicity. Within our own University community, we need to pledge ourselves to real and lasting change.

NUA Students’ Union is here to listen to students, represent students, educate students and support the fight for changes that need to happen within our own community and beyond.

Throughout the academic year the BAME Liberation Officer and BAME Society have been working hard with the support of the Students' Union to engage with the University to address issues surrounding diversity, staff training, curriculum and reporting processes. NUA Students’ Union wants to ensure that BAME students feel safe and supported and that their voices are heard.

As we approach the end of the academic year the SU President and BAME Liberation Officer will be giving an update on the work they have been doing - and will continue with - to address issues faced by the BAME community at NUA.
