"Out" Yourself as an Ally at Virginia Tech!
This is an online pledge to show your support for the LGBTQ community of Virginia Tech and the greater southwest Virginia area. The QG&A of Virginia Tech invites YOU to help create a better environment for EVERYONE!
If you would like to have your picture taken, stop by the Graduate Life Center Room D on May 11, 2011 from 9am-1pm and/or 4pm-6pm to 'out' yourself as an ally!!! If you cannot make it out, take a picture of yourself with a reason why YOU are an ally and post it on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=170692259654541
By signing this pledge I am making a commitment to:
(i) Challenge assumptions, myths, and misperceptions
(ii) Step out of my comfort zone and seek new knowledge about racism, classism, ageism, ableism, sexism, heterosexism, genderism, and other forms of oppression.
(iii) Examine my own power and privilege.
(iv) Work to advocate for one or more oppressed groups to which I may or may not belong.
(v) Tell my friends (Hokies or otherwise) about the pledge!
