Ish Tominey-Nevado

Warwick Students' Union

 

Supporting statement: Hello everyone, I'm Ish! I'm a student at Warwick and Campaigns Officer at Warwick Pride, our LGBT+ group. I'm running for the LGBT+ place on the Liberation Steering Committee because as the resources NUS allocates have been reduced, now more than ever we need to make sure that the time we allow to discuss proposals is just and effective. I'm a fair-minded and conscientious person with a passion for making sure every student's voice is heard, so I would love to support students in navigating NUS reformed democracy.

Lucas North

University of Manchester Students' Union

 

Supporting statement: I began my NUS journey at Trans Conference 2015/16. It's been amazing to watch the trans campaign grow since then. I sat on the first ever trans conference steering committee, and chaired the committee until last year. Since then, I've spent a year as vice chair of NUS' Democratic Procedures Committee. I have 5 years worth of NUS events, and know what delegates need from our spaces.
I'm asking trans students to trust me to deliver for them: an accessible conference, where trans voices are heard, where intersectionality is centred in our democracy, and where all delegates can participate.

Molly Houghton

Edge Hill Students' Union

 

Supporting statement: As a advocate for queer rights, women rights and lobbying for support for disabled students, liberation has always been my passion.
When I first joined my institution I had no idea what 'liberation groups' were or that with my first 12 months at university I would be launching myself into becoming a liberation activist. I have been involved in NUS liberation for 5 years now and over that time I have seen a change to how NUS delivers liberation support. I want to ensure that it is and continues to be intersectional, accessible and most importantly represents our members.
