We unapologetically aim to lift up, center, and give support to trans and queer students, staff and faculty. We approach our work with an understanding, awareness and consciousness of the systematic ways oppression marginalizes members of our LGBTQIA+ community.
While gender and sexuality are foundational, our broader commitment is to create safer spaces on campus and work in solidarity to build an inclusive and equitable environment where all members feel valued and have agency over their own experience. We serve as active engaged members of our larger WCU community and work within an ethical framework to not only provide resources for those who may not have equal access, but to stay accountable to supporting underrepresented and underserved community members.
We are dedicated to celebrating and validating the intersections of one’s identities while actively working towards dismantling the structural inequalities that disproportionately affect communities that have been impacted by deep-rooted, systemic oppression. We recognize that social justice examines the interconnectedness of one’s social identities and the impact it has on their daily experience. Through education, action, advocacy and accountability we work to liberate trans and queer people from systems of oppression, so they can freely live their lives.
Ultimately, we aim to work in solidarity to reimagine a globally and socially just campus environment and world.
