I'll Go With You
When trans and gender non-conforming students use gendered bathrooms ("men" and "women" rooms), they face the possibility of harassment or violence. Become an ally! Get information (and a button!) to wear on a jacket or daypack to indicate publicly that you are willing to be asked by individuals to go to a bathroom where they may fear going alone. Information table in the Center Building most of the first day of spring term, April 2. Stop by the Gender Equity Center at all other times. For more information go to the I'll go with you site.
