Just three months ago, we launched the Religious Exemption Accountability Project (REAP) as the only national effort solely committed to supporting and empowering LGBTQ students who face discrimination at religious colleges.

In three months, we’ve elevated the national conversation around anti-LGBTQ discrimination at religious colleges – and put schools on notice: If you discriminate, we will hold you accountable.

  • In March, we launched a first-of-its-kind report detailing the rampant abuse and discrimination faced by queer and transgender students at more than 200 religious institutions nationwide.

  • Two weeks later, we launched a class-action lawsuit, with 33 LGBTQ students demanding that the Department of Education stop granting religious exemptions to schools that discriminate.

  • REAP’s work – and most importantly, the stories of our plaintiffs and LGBTQ students – have been featured in more than 100 media outlets nationwide, including the Washington Post, NBC and Religion News Service.

When you support REAP, you are supporting a cause that fills a much-needed gap in the LGBTQ movement – with a clear strategy that is laser-focused on ending anti-LGBTQ discrimination at taxpayer-funded religious colleges.

If we’ve accomplished all of this in just three months, imagine – with your support – how powerful this movement will be in the months and years to come.
