Create safety for transgender students and faculty.

This petition had 2,724 supporters

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.
