Cuffie Award

How do I get that cool Cuffie Award that Mariah got?  Get busy being active in supporting LGBT communities!  The next award will be May 2016, so you have time to do exciting things.

The Lionel Cuffie Award for Activism and Excellence is given to 3 graduating seniors (one student from New Brunswick, Newark & Camden) who identifies as lesbian, gay , bisexual, transgender, queer, or ally. The awardee will receive a citation and a gift of $500.
The following criteria must be met:
-Completion of the Undergraduate Degree in May, 2016
-Active in the LGBTQ communities on or off-campus for at least two years.
-Has worked to reduce prejudice against and to promote understanding of LGBTQ communities and issues


March 31 is International Day of Transgender Visability.  Not to be confused with Transgender Day of Rememberance (November 20), the International Day of Visibility celebrates the courage and accomplishements of those in the trans* community.
So, you may be asking yourself, what should I know about the trans* community and how can I support them?
