“There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”
Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches
Our campaigns, like our academic studies, are about challenging social and structural inequalities and injustices. Whether campaigns are social or environmental, local or international, SOAS-specific or external, they intersect and relate in complex and varying ways. In short, the struggles we face as individuals do not exist in isolation, but are informed and connected to wider social issues and systems of inequality.
Campaigns are about taking what we learn in lectures and putting it into practice, and using our activism to inform and shape our academic life. Our priority campaigns are decided by students in Union General Meetings. If you’d like to start a campaign, email us, submit a motion and get involved! Listed are some of our long-term campaigns, for more info check out the campaigns section of our website.
