Baylor University Students at February 2021 Sit-In for Diversity & Inclusivity, including members of Baylor GAY - The Unofficial LGBTQIA+ Club at Baylor University


ABouT Us

At many religious schools, colleges, and universities, LGBTQIA+ and other marginalized students suffer discrimination, abuse, isolation, and hardship. If this describes you, you are not alone. We are in this together. 

REAP fights for the safety, bodily autonomy, justice, and human rights of LGBTQIA+ and other communities marginalized at many predominantly white, taxpayer-funded religious schools and colleges. Using campus organizing, storytelling through podcasting, documentary film, and speaking and preaching on campuses throughout the country, REAP empowers students, faculty, staff, and alumni at these institutions to advocate for human rights, while shining a light on the dangers and abuses of a major educational pipeline of white Christian Supremacy.

Since taking up the Elizabeth Hunter, et al v. US Department of Education lawsuit as pro bono counsel, Perkins Coie has generously donated over eight hundred thousand dollars of legal services in pursuit of justice for LGBTQIA+ students affected by discrimination at private, religious colleges. 


REAP is proud to support and be in solidarity with the team at Perkins Coie and has taken on the role of amplifying plaintiff narratives and acting as the primary support and organizer of students on these LGBTQIA+ non-affirming religious campuses.
