About Activism at ALLIES
ALLIES hosts various events throughout the year to involve the CMU campus in issues about gender and orientation. Many of the events we do center on education and raising awareness. We celebrate dates such as Ace Awareness Day, Bi Visibility Day, and Trans Awareness Month, table at events, and host panels and speakers.
Examples of recent events include: National Coming Out Day panel, Counterprotesting the Westboro Baptist Church; Break the Silence, an open mic night to celebrate Day of Silence; collaborating with other organizations at CMU to host Laverne Cox.

Join us in remembering those indivduals who have faced violence from transphobia. We will be on the Cut reading the names of trans individuals who have recently lost their lives from transphobic violence, as well as sharing our own coming out stories. Check out our Facebook event here.
