Sigma Omega Phi Fraternity Inc. Supports LGBTQ Inclusion Bill For HBCUs
Sigma Omega Phi Fraternity Inc (SOP) endorses H.R. 6164, the Inclusive Campuses Act of 2016, which was just introduced by U.S. Representative Hank Johnson (GA-4). This bill promotes inclusion and empowerment of LGBTQ people at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other minority serving institutions. The legislation takes a critical step forward by authorizing Title III education funds to establish campus resource centers that provide support for LGBTQ students as well as programming resources and education about LGBTQ people to the entire campus community at our nation’s HBCUs and other minority serving institutions.
“SOP commends U.S. Representative Hank Johnson for introducing this vital piece of legislation to equip all HBCUs with the tools and support necessary for the future,” said Amber Moore, Founder of SOP. “This legislation will greatly assist in the positive change and inclusion happening at all HBCU campuses and other Minority Serving Institutions.”
To date, other groups supporting the Inclusive Campuses Act include: Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals, National Black Justice Coalition, Trans Student Educational Resources and Fayetteville State University.
