CONTEXT
 As the voice of Jewish students, we believe in campus communities where every student is safe and supported to achieve their ambitions within and beyond their studies; a British society where students play a leading role in protecting and promoting difference and diversity; and a world in which all people and peoples express their religious, cultural, ethnic and national identities without fear of hate or prejudice.
