Welcome to the Warwick Liberal Democrats - we represent the Liberal Democrats and Young Liberals on campus. We encourage political discussion on campus, promote liberal values, run socials, campainging activites, debates, and speaker events.
We strive to always be open and inclusive, welcoming people of all political persuasions who want to get involved in our debates, campaigns, or just meet new friends! We hope you'll come say hello and get involved!
You can like our Facebook page to keep up to date with our events and activities, and also like our pinned post about joining our 2020/21 groupchat if you want to get involved in frequent conversation about recent events and politics with friendly, likeminded people! You can also join our society Facebook group to receive updates from us about campaigning days locally. We also regularly tweet at @UofWLibDems and have a new Instagram page!
As well as our fun socials, this year we have exciting virtual speaker events lined up with figures including leading MPs and journalists. These events are exclusive to Warwick students. Make sure you join us to be the first to hear about them as they're announced!
We run a range of socials, both drinking and non-drinking, so there's something for everyone. For the more politically involved we have 'Spirited Discussions ' which is our debate evening where we discuss a range of topics, both serious and more light-hearted. We also have more relaxed socials such as LiberTea or our Board Games evening. We welcome those from across the political spectrum so do come along even if you aren't a Liberal Democrat!
Thoughout the year we invite a range of speakers to come do talks and to engage with students. This year, we have our biggest and most exciting list of potential speakers ever - ranging from MPs to prominent journalists! As a result of Covid-19, these sessions will be both online and in-person.
We run campaigns both on- and off-campus, promoting liberal values. For the 2019 General Election, we had teams campaigning in Kennilworth, Leamington and Coventry, with Lib Dems joining us from areas like Birmingham. There is a strong Liberal Democrat prescence on Warwickshire District Council, and we hope to get even more local Liberal Democrats elected in the 2021 Elections.
We hope you will get involved this year and come along to our events and get to know us. Membership is free so our society is accessible for all. We hope to see you soon.
