The purpose of Western Allies is to provide a place for people to discuss social justice issues as well as to spread the word and start discussions on campus and in the community about these issues. We want Western Allies to be a place for community-building and networking, especially with other social justice groups, in order to support each other in our common goal of educating ourselves and those around us about privilege and oppression and skills for social change, or ally skills. We recognize that being an ally is never something we can completely arrive at, rather a continuing goal that we are constantly working towards and we want to create a space to share our experiences in doing so by holding regular, ongoing dialogues to discuss social justice issues.
Equal Rights Washington Vikings works to promote marital equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Western students, educating the Western community on Washington’s current marital laws, what we can do to change them for equality and why.
As the committee learns about unique scholarship opportunities, we will post information in our scholarship resource packet. If you know of LGBTQ+ and Ally related scholarships and/or scholarships specifically for LGBTQ+ identified students, please send us the information!
