BEMA is a Liberation Association that represents BME students on their welfare, social and political needs through the Guild, and campaigns on their behalf towards these needs, often alongside relevant student societies and local organisations.
They provide safe spaces for self-empowerment and discussion on the issues and commonalities of experience shared by BME students, and also for organising around these issues.
BEMA also hold a range of events to celebrate the diversity of cultures within the University, highlight the historical contributions and achievements of BME people, and also to allow students to engage with BME organisations operating within higher education, locally and nationally.
BEMA host a series of events annually for Black History Month in October, Alternative Freshers’ Week social events and more throughout the year, and seeks to make these events as inclusive of BME students as possible, including hosting them in non-alcoholic environments.
