Take action to protect and support LGBTQ students at religious colleges

STRIKE OUT Queerphobia: Each year, over 100,000 LGBTQIA+ students at more than 200 religiously affilated, taxpayer funded, univerities throughout the U.S., are denied basic civil rights protections against discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity. These students can be denied admission, disciplined, or expelled, simply for living openly. Not only can this discrimination derail their education and future careers, the harmful and discriminatory atmospheres on these campuses lead to dramatic mental health disparities, and dangerously elevated rates of self-harm, and suicide for LGBTQIA+ students. Please sign our petition, and join the fight to ensure that LGBTQIA+ students are safe and welcome on every federally funded college campus in the U.S.
The purpose of this petition is to call on Walsh University to allow and accept an LGBTQ+ safe space club on their campus and to give that club the emotional and financial support. We are simply asking for the same support given to all other clubs on campus. Without a safe community for LGBTQ students at Walsh, students find themselves isolated, alone, excluded and rejected from the overall campus community.
Sign this petition and call on the administration at Walsh to allow for the creation of a supported and funded safe space club for the LGBTQ+ population and their allies.
Oral roberts university
Imagine what it would be like to learn that in order to attend the Christian college of your choice, you first had to sign a pledge denying your God-given identity. That’s the reality for LGTBQ students who register for classes at Oral Roberts University.
Faithful America and the Religious Exemption Accountability Project (REAP) are teaming up with ORU students and alumni to ask college administrators to do the right thing and protect LGBTQ students on campus.
Take the Pledge
We’re building a nationwide movement
to show LGBTQ students facing discrimination on religious campuses that they are not alone. Add your name now if you agree it’s time for taxpayer-funded religious colleges and universities to end discrimination against LGBTQ students.
