We are the BME campaign
The Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Campaign represents, supports, and advocates for all BME students at the University of Cambridge.
We bring together organisations from across the University to campaign for an inclusive Cambridge. We organise events to build communities of care and compassion for BME students, coordinate with JCR/MCR reps and societies to strengthen BME student representation, and campaign on the big issues that matter to BME students - everything ranging from the lack of targeted mental health support for BME students and racist treatment by student-facing staff, to the Prevent Duty and the Collegiate University's continued connections with the arms trade, the fossil fuel lobby, and corporations that profit from the death and destruction of communities across the globe.
