Here's why the GSA is important to me:
Because all students, of any common identity or interest (as far as it is not harmful to others), should be able to gather in an official capacity on University property.Why is it important to you? Tell them.
Because people that are discriminated against -- in this case LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff -- should be able to gather in a safe space to voice their joys, frustrations, hopes, and fears to their friends and allies without fear or reprisal or penalty.
Because not allowing a gay-straight alliance tells the world that Notre Dame is far behind the curve in its acceptance of those who identify as LGBTQ.
Because not allowing a gay-straight alliance is discriminatory.
