The Religious Exemption Accountability Project is proud to partner with these organizations across the country in our work to support LGBTQ+ students at religious colleges and universities.
Athlete Ally and REAP are new partners and collaborators both with an aim to create spaces where LGBTQIA+ people may flourish. Athlete Ally believes that everyone should have equal access, opportunity, and experience in sports — regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Their mission is to end the rampant homophobia and transphobia in sport and to activate the athletic community to exercise their leadership to champion LGBTQI+ equality.
Our Bible App
Our Bible App is a progressive community, and we want you to join us in celebrating our many diversities and faith capacities. This is a faith-based Bible app that is “uplifting believers of all stripes.” Until now, it has been extremely difficult to find devotionals, podcasts, and resources that aren’t overtly conservative in nature. Our goal is to provide a platform with the largest compilation of progressive faith-based media content, bringing together writers and readers in one final media hub. We hope you will enjoy our offerings. Come back often to discover weekly featured devotionals, podcasts, and more.
REAP’s collaboration with our Bible App includes a REAP “shelf” on the app which is free to all of their subscribers. The REAP shelf contains resources from REAP, writings, first-hand experiential accounts, and plaintiff features, all of which celebrates the stories of Queer and Trans identities at religious colleges.
REAP Director, Paul Southwick and REAP Campus Alumni Organizer, Erin Green are featured on the Exvangelical Podcast and talk about how LGBTQ+ students are treated by college administrations, how LGBTQ+ students end up at religious colleges, the history of religious colleges resisting civil rights, and why a formal legal challenge is important.
In addition, Founder of Exvangelical Podcast, Blake Chastain, has created a donation partnership with REAP which incorporates economic reparations to communities harmed by the Evangelical Church.
Campus Pride and REAP work together to publicly expose and address the harms that religious colleges pose to LGBTQ students.
In 2021 Campus Pride released its "Absolute Worst" list, noting the most unsafe college campuses for LGBTQ+ students. The organization cited REAP's lawsuit in many of its listings and determined that schools that have requested a religious exemption from Title IX are often unsafe and hostile climates for LGBTQ+ students.
Free Mom Hugs
FreeMomHugs.org is partnering with REAP to show support for Queer and Trans students at private religious universities. The wonderful Moms at FreeMomHugs are participating in a card writing and care package campaign for our plaintiffs as well as current and future LGBTQ students that we work with!
