University of Alabama Advocates for a True LGBTQ-Inclusive Campus

November 1, 2016

Our chapter at the University of Alabama has worked this semester to make their community a more inclusive place for LGBTQ students. The chapter has sponsored a piece of proposed campus legislation to increase the number of OB/GYNs at the student health center to alleviate long waits for annual check-ups. Before agreeing to sponsor the bill, the URGE chapter insisted on changing the language of the bill to be inclusive of trans and gender non-conforming students who need OB/GYN services. With that change made, they will work with the Student Government to pass this legislation and increase services on campus. University of Alabama has also been busy participating in a local pride event and commenting on the ongoing battle to hold anti-LGBTQ judges accountable.
