Global Majority Campaign

Led by President - Zain and VP Societies and Communication - Bahkai 

"This campaign aims to give a voice and create a platform to Students of Colour, usually known as Black Minority Ethnic (BME).

People of Colour make up the global majority of the world population and therefore we are using this term to reclaim the narrative around being seen as minorities. The campaign is student led involving students from the Islamic, Nigerian, Afro-Caribbean, Somali and Mandem Societies. 

The Global Majority campaign highlights topics that showcase and celebrate Global majority students and the issues that are important through workshops, panel discussions and events".
