We raise awareness, campaign, fundraise, and volunteer with and for refugees, in the Cambridge community and beyond.
Student Action for Refugees Cambridge (STAR) is a newly formed society whose main aims are raising student awareness around refugee-related issues; campaigning for refugee rights and policy reform; and directly volunteering to help refugees and asylum seekers. We are part of a national network of STAR groups, and a university based coalition of Human Rights societies. If any of this interests you, we would love for you to be involved.
Our current projects include supporting the work of local charity CamCRAG; ad-hoc community and online volunteering; running speaker events; setting up a social media outreach campaign; participating in a network of Human Rights Society events and activities; and attending Refugee-related protests both in Cambridge and in London.
We are also looking for people who are interested in being college representatives, to coordinate college based applications to the University of Sanctuary project.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to Cambridge STAR!
