Each Liberation Network is made up of:
- Any King’s students who self-define into the Network
- An elected Network Chair
- A Network Committee and Network Volunteers
- Member Societies (Affiliated activity groups)
Networks aim to bring together existing communities as a platform for collaboration, sharing and organising. Their purpose is to combat discrimination and inequality faced by their communities on a local and national level through organising and collective campaigning and giving a space for students to connect with one another around issues that affect them. They also hold King’s and KCLSU to account and ensure sure we are acting with equality and inclusion in mind.
Our Networks are intersectional and this means they recognise the overlaps (or intersections) between different identities and the knock-on effects. It’s possible to self-define into one, some, or all of the Networks. As a result, Networks often work together to achieve the best results.
Networks also recognise and celebrate Liberation History Months throughout the year; these are Black History Month, Disabled History Month, Trans Awareness Week, Women’s History Month and LGBT+ History Month. You can learn more about applying for Liberation History Month Funding here.
