The Feminist Action Project would like to thank UT's first LGBTQ-inclusive sorority Gamma Rho Lambda for its contribution to our organization. We would like to recognize the work that the members of Gamma Rho Lambda accomplished to make a much-appreciated donation to our organization.
"Gamma Rho Lambda National Sorority is an all-inclusive social sorority
exemplifying the qualities of tolerance, diversity, unity, and trust,
which provides a network of assistance
in the areas of scholastic guidance, emotional support, and community
service while ultimately developing the lifelong bonds of siblinghood."
For the first time in history, the Feminist Action Project hosted a joint conference with the Queer and Trans Student Alliance. Entitled Intersectional Advocacy: Queer, Trans, and Feminist Identities in Changing Political Climates, the conference welcomed more than 150 UT and non-UT students, faculty, staff, and community members for its two-day conference. As Kim Katrin Milan kicked off the conference with her delightful, engaging keynote speech, the conference the followed with a full day of workshops and panels, focusing on issues that those with queer, trans, and/or feminist identities encounter in these changing political climates. From the International Indigenous Youth Council, to BeVocal, the conference was possible with attempts and efforts of many organizations to frame and highlight dialogues in light of current political events.
The Feminist Action Project would like to dedicate many thanks to Events Co-Sponsorship Board, BeVocal, Queer Graduate Student Alliance, Student Government, UT Co-Op, Pride & Equity Faculty-Staff Alliance, Center for Women's and Gender Studies, Human Rights Student Advisory Council, Division of Diversity & Community Engagement, the Orange Jackets, the Gender and Sexuality Center, Queer and Trans Student Alliance, and Senate of College Councils, who helped to make this wonderful event possible.
