All Lifestyles Included
The purpose of ALI is to create and promote awareness for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning commnuity within Monmouth University.
This includes providing an open and safe atmosphere for students on campus, sharing ideas among one another, offering an opportunity for social contacts, supplying resources to the GLBTQ community regarding health, well-being, and support, and educating each other and members of the campus community in issues of importance to sexual minorities. These actions will be done in an effort to encourage tolerance, understanding and acceptance at Monmouth University so no one is made to feel the need to either hide or deny their sexuality.
Our goals are to further acceptance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning students and to protect the existing rights of sexual minorities at Monmouth University. In addition, we intend to encourage positive role models in the community, provide a voice for our community, and sponsor a sense of pride for people of all lifestyles.
ALI shall endeavor to initiate and participate in programs to educate the community on political issues such as: the on-going fight for marriage equality; HIV Research; Hate Crimes Legislation; Adoption Rights; AIDS Education; and many other causes relative to the GLBTQ Community.
In addition to this, ALI provides a forum for the discussion of the vital importance of Queer History, a platform for GLTBQ artists/activists of the present, and an ongoing dialogue regarding a future with the promise of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and equal (not special) rights and protection under the law.
Privacy is assured to anyone participating in ALI unless he or she expresses a desire to relinquish that confidentiality.
