As some of you may already be aware, we held our AGM tonight and elected our committee for next year. Exciting times! We’ve also made a c0uple of changes to our structure to allow everyone to feel a little less pressure in the running of the society. So, without further ado, your new committee members are (drumroll, please!)…

Congratulations to all who were elected and also everyone who stood for a position. Everyone was really brave to put themselves out there and please still feel free to come along to planning meetings in the Chaplaincy at 6pm. They are open to all!
Whew. And still there is work to be done. Our final meeting of the semester will focus on positive human rights stories of the year and also bring to light the changes – small scale and large scale – that we have made as a society.
Keep fighting human rights abuses and, even when it feels like you’re smashing your head against a brick wall, never forget that a small, dedicated group of people can change the world.
