We are the Labour Soceity at the University of Sussex. We welcome students (from any instution) and staff of the University to join the club. Membership is free to join our mailing lists, and £1 when you attend your first event. We try and work with other Labour Students clubs around the UK and very closely with the Brighton, Hove and District Labour Party (the City Party).
You can join by clicking the "add to your basket" link on the right, go to the "view your basket" link to then "buy" your free memebrship. We will take the £1 dontation when we see you at the society meeting. You will need to either log in with your University of Sussex or BSMS account or if you are a University of Brighton student or a student elsewhere you can make your account when you go to checkout.
To join the national Labour party and the National federation of Labour Students tyou can also do this online at https://join.labour.org.uk/labour-student/2
We meet on Tuesdays from 18:15 to 19:45 in Fulton Room 202 on Campus and then hold other events around the place.
Check out our public facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/UniSussexLabour) for more updates and events when they come up. We also have members only forms which once you join the society we will add you on to and so we can start communicating in a safe space.
We are due to have elections for a new committee in October so you can help take a leadership of where we go. We reserve some positions for "liberation officers" for each of the national liberation campains run by Labour Students. The current committee for 2015/16 is:
ELSIE POWERS - firstname.lastname@example.org

Vice Chair: Membership
CALLUM CANT - firstname.lastname@example.org

We are currently working on running campaings on Housing, the European Union, Electoral Registration and consulting on what other campaings students would like us to run. We are working with our current Labour councillors, the Students' Union, our Labour led council and our Labour MEP to make sure that our campains are effective to create the change we need to see in our university and city. Come alone and have your say about what we should be doing.
