The goal of the FSCJ Ally Program is to support faculty, staff and students in becoming resources for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered. Ally members provide a safe and confidential space where students can discuss LGBTQ issues and concerns. Ally members also advocate for removing all forms of bias, prejudice, hetero-sexism, homophobia and discrimination against LGBTQ students at FSCJ.

What is Expected from an Ally?

As an Ally, you will receive an “LGBTQ Ally” sticker to visually identify yourself as a supporter of the LGBTQ community. By displaying your sticker, you are sending a message that you can provide a non-judgmental environment and an empathetic ear around the issues of culture and diversity.

Who is an Ally?

The Ally contact list contains the names of faculty, staff and students who have opted to have their contact information shared online.

For more information, please contact your campus Student Life and Leadership office or Vee Byrd, Associate Director of Student Engagement at diversity&socialchange@fscj.edu.
