Hi, I’m Maia (she/her), a second year Chemist at New College, and I’ll be one of your co-chairs in Trinity Term 2022. In my time at Oxford, I’ve found OULC to be one of the most interesting and fun places here, and I’m really looking forward to welcoming any new and curious Labour supporters this term. Hari and I have been working really hard on creating a term card that I hope you’ll all enjoy, and so I can’t wait to see you all at our events!

hari

Hey! I’m Hari (he/they), a second year English student at Univ, and alongside Maia I will be serving as your co-chair for Trinity term. The goal is to make OULC bigger and better than ever, with more speakers, more campaigning and more socials than ever before. With a local election and a packed termcard (Maia and I’s baby), this should be a term to remember. Whether you’re an Oxford Labour loyalist or have never attended any of our events it would be great to see you at OULC this term. I am immensely proud of the committee we have assembled and can’t wait to get going! As always, feel free to drop me a message if you have any queries about the club and what we do.

Secretary 

Treasurer

Els Staddon

Hi, I’m Els (she/her), a first year history student at Merton college and your treasurer for TT22. I will be responsible for the clubs finances and making sure we can continue to afford to put on our amazing events. I also have an encyclopaedic knowledge of Labour history, with a passion for Labour women’s history, which means I am fully aware that the first woman to be OULC’s treasurer was none other than our Red Queen Barbara Castle, who wasn’t wrong when she said the best thing about Oxford was the OULC!

Let’s keep our council red!

I will also be putting together ‘Look Left,’ which is the club’s magazine and includes articles on Labour’s history, its internal politics and debates about Labour’s future. If anybody would like to write something, pitch me your idea! Outside of politics, I love all things German, Liverpool FC, tennis, running and reading.

Welfare Officer

Hi! My name’s Hayden, and I’m acting as your Welfare Officer this term. My job is to make sure the OULC remains a safe, inviting community.

LGBTQIA+ Officer

Alex Beard

277252991_3252705138297170_2768001870245713670_n

Hi, I’m Alex and I will be representing OULC’s queer community in my capacity as LGBT+ Officer this term. I see the role as both pastoral and political, ensuring that OULC is a safe space for queer students and listening to their concerns, as well as fighting on behalf of the community for issues that affect us. In the current climate, this especially means taking a resolute stand against transphobia and fighting for trans equality. I can’t wait to meet more queer people at OULC events!

 

Co-Chairs Elect

Maddie Cooke and Bella Simpson

277338472_520014466374236_8971639458347870712_n

Hi, My name is Maddie. Bella and I will be your co-chairs elect this term. We will be working alongside committee to ensure that OULC continues to work as effectively and inclusively as possible. Whilst remaining engaged with this term’s activities, myself and Bella will be organising OULC’s Michaelmas Term. If you’d like any information on how to become more involved, shoot me a message. I’d welcome any suggestions on how you’d like to see the club improve, OULC is a collaborative endeavour and our community is essential to what we do. I’m most looking forward to a covid-free trinity term out in the sun, pimms and politics in the park anyone?

277347377_507559521098486_4517830685962505882_n

Hi my name is Bella (she / her) and I will be one of your co-chair elects for this term. Last term I had the great privilege of being your Campaigns Officer. This term I will be working alongside Maddie to plan our term: Michaelmas 2022 and helping with this term’s events.

Our Labour Movement means an awful lot to me and I am proud to be a part of it. I am a staunch trade unionist with our connections to the trade union movement being something that I will always fight to protect.

I am dedicated to ensuring that OULC represents all. I have previously worked with LGBT+ Labour on events and I am proud to be an ally of the Jewish Labour Movement. Maddie and I want OULC to be a safe and welcoming space for all. To stand in solidarity is to have one another’s back. That is what the Labour movement is about and what drives us here at OULC.

Do get in touch if you have any questions or concerns and I will see you all for some left wing karaoke! (i.e. many spirits and PULP!)

Co-Chairs Ex-Officio

Danny Leach and Amy Field

Hi! I’m Danny (he/him), and I’m a second year PPE student at Pembroke. This term I’ll be your co-chair “ex-officio” which means I’ll be advising Hari and Maia, to support their fantastic work putting the term together. I’ll also be trying to engage alumni better in order to raise money for the club, and if you can stomach the general meetings, I’ll be there to chair them – but don’t let that put you off!

243764466_1504098109954065_2408014580042306438_nHi, I’m Amy and I’m Cochair Ex Officio for TT22! I’m a passionate Socialist and am passionate about connecting OULC to the wider Labour Movement, especially Trade Unions. I loved running OULC last term with Danny and can’t wait to jump into the Ex Officio role and reinvigorating the Attlee association whilst also lending Maia and Hari and hand as well! Being involved in OULC has been the highlight so far of my time in Oxford, so I’d encouraged any student with left wing leanings to come and get involved!
