The Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Network (BAME) represents the views of students’ at York who self define as BAME, which is including but not limited to students with African, Asian, Arab and Latin American heritages. This involves weekly meetings, running campaigns and mobilising York students against fascism at a local and national level. We also provide internships and career opportunities for BAME students to overcome the structural barriers BAME people face in the job market. One of our key and ongoing campaigns at York is ‘Why is my Curriculum White?’, which aims to critically look at the lack of BAME voices in the curriculum and at the university as a whole, if you are interested feel free to join the facebook group (link below) or attend our regular alternative reading groups.
