This community organise on behalf of Leeds Beckett students of African, Asian, Arabic, Chinese and Caribbean descent.
To join this community you must first self-identify as Black, Asian & Minoritised Ethnicity.
Led by the Black, Asian & Minoritised Ethnicity Students' Convenor, our community organise on behalf of Leeds Beckett students of African, Asian, Arabic, Chinese and Caribbean descent on all issues affecting BAME students.
Our manifesto outlines our vision for making black, asian & minority ethnic students' lives better.
We recognise that over time priorities change, students come and go with new ideas and it is intended that this manifesto will change with them, adding new priorities and celebrating achievements as they occur.
Alongside our friends from other marginalised groups, we all agree that it is our responsibility to promote greater intersectionality and inclusivity of students, including but not limited to faith, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation and race.
We do not tolerate racist, anti-Semitic, islamophobic, fascist, sexist, xenophobic, ableist, LGBT-phobic or ageist views expressed within our space and consider these views, by their very nature to be threatening and intimidating to our members and our values.
Black, Asian & Minoritised Ethnicity Students' Convenor

The candidates with the most votes are elected to represent their peers, whether that be leading the Students’ Union as a full-time Officer, leading their respective Student Communities or attending the NUS National Conference to represent Leeds Beckett students at a national level.
