Campus Pride Awards ‘Social Justice Grants’ for LGBTQ Activism
“working to create a safer college environment for LGBTQ students”
The left sees activism as a major part of higher education. The right needs to start doing more of the same on subjects that are important to conservatives.
Campus Reform reports:
Campus Pride awarding LGBTQ social justice grants for ‘activism,’ ‘advocacy,’ ‘organizing’
Applications are open for Campus Pride’s “Social Justice Mini-Grants for Activism,” a funding opportunity for “direct grassroots activism, advocacy efforts and organizing” to support the LGBTQ community.
Campus Pride, a non-profit “working to create a safer college environment for LGBTQ students,” asks applicants to describe a project that aligns with its mission and answer an essay question about their “diverse intersections and identities.”
Past projects include a student at North Seattle College who created signage for gender-inclusive bathrooms and “sex positive health stations to distribute condoms.” Another mini-grant helped a Brigham Young University (BYU) student host a “family friendly drag show.”
In its advocacy, Campus Pride also serves as a ‘Trans Policy Clearinghouse” for students, families, and university administrators. As “the premier resource for transgender policies at colleges and universities,” Campus Pride advises on gender-inclusive housing, gender-affirming healthcare plans, and other policies.
Campus Pride issues universities an “LGBTQ-Friendly Report Card” that rates them based on their implementation of these policies. Ithaca College, as Campus Reform has reported, has a five-star rating as one of 427 colleges offering gender-inclusive housing.
The report cards also rate campuses on whether they host events on “intersectionality” and have a bias-reporting system and staff who offer LGBTQ services.
A “Worst List” reports alleged anti-LGBTQ discrimination by colleges and universities. Campus Pride references the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), another organization that provides designations to colleges and universities for providing transition-related medical services and procedures.

What good does it do for an organization to write grants for conservative activities when the school will just ban the activity?
I mean, you could be describing Turning Point here. We’ve done this experiment.
