Adam Ackley, a beloved theology professor of fifteen years, was "asked to step down" from his position as a professor at Azusa Pacific University due to his recent openness about his identity as a transgender man. This event has sparked fear and anger within the LGBTQ and Ally community of APU. We stand in solidarity with Adam, and strive to create a safer environment for students and faculty who have been marginalized by APU's conservative policies, as well as those who have been victims of spiritual violence on campus. 

To:
Create safety for transgender students and faculty.

Sincerely,

      How does being transgender change Mr. Ackley's teaching ability? If he was a good professor before, he is a good professor now. The only thing different is that Mr. Ackley represents tolerance which is a lesson all students could and should learn.

      We should be far past this by now. Tolerance and peace should be how these issues are treated.
