I've spent my time at university campaigning for change at LSE including passing the sexual assault motion and helping make the AU safer - but there’s more I want to achieve to ensure our campus is:

Supportive

  1. Mental health services should work for everyone 
    • Counsellors should reflect LSE’s diversity of religion, ethnicity, sexual and gender identity
    • Ensure maximum two-week waiting time
  2. Sexual violence support should be reformed
    • LSE should have a full-time Independent Sexual Violence Advisor 
    • Introduce provisions for male survivors 
  3. Consistent implementation of Inclusion Plans in every department

Active

  1. Reinvigorate student activism and democracy
    • Increase support and funding for student campaigns and PTOs
    • Improve the UGM motion process
  2. Introduce 'Community Spotlight Awards' for outstanding student contributions
  3. Widen sabbatical officers' remit to include climate action

Inclusive

  1. Make campus open to all
    • Ensure full accessibility in all new LSE buildings
  2. Create better student-centred spaces
    • Include a mindfulness/faith room in the Marshall Building 
    • Make the ARC a fit-for-purpose area for student creativity 
  3. Continue to work towards an AU for all
    • Introduce 'healthy masculinity' week
    • Training to tackle racism, homophobia and sexual misconduct
