Post submitted by James Rector - HRC Arkansas Field Organizer

Yesterday, students, faculty, and staff at Arkansas State University (ASU) in Jonesboro, Arkansas celebrated the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity to the university’s recently updated Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) policy. Speakers at the event included Maurice Gipson, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Joseph Rukus, Assistant Professor of Criminology and Harley Mayall, student and representative of the A-State Gay Straight Alliance.

“I look forward to a day when we no longer have to celebrate the small victories, but rather we can celebrate each other’s humanity,” said Gipson, who took his position at A-State in February of 2015.

HRC and Sodexo Food Service at ASU provided resources and food, respectively, in front of the Reng Student Union. Many campus organizations expressed their support for the celebration including A-State Office of Diversity, Women and Gender Studies, A-State Gay/Straight Alliance, A-State Multicultural Center and A-State Young Democrats.

As young people push to attain the goals of the queer community on their campuses, HRC is working to provide tools, facilitate connections with other LGBT student activists across the country and empower youth to fight for LGBT equality on campus and beyond. For more information, click here.

NOM’s Latest Protest Draws A Whopping Eleven People

Can you believe the National Organization for Marriage still even exists? Of course, these days they’re mostly focused on trans bathroom policies and other countries, which makes them neither “National” nor “for Marriage.” And now it looks like they aren’t even organized, either. NOM just organized a rally at the Mexican embassy in Washington DC, a show of [...]
