Allied Advance

Become An Ally!
To become an Ally, you must attend a training session, hosted twice each long semester, during a lunch period. As always, a meal will be provided...  more ...

ALLIANCE [alliance]

  • a close association of nations or other groups, formed to advance common interests or causes
  • a connection based on kinship, marriage, or common interest
  • a bond or tie close similarity in nature or type

The biggest step you must complete to becoming an ALLY is completing a training session.

Next Training Session:  TBD

Food and refreshments will be provided (please let us know if you are vegetarian). Maximum capacity is 20 trainees, so arrive early or RSVP to insure a spot. Send an email to if you are interested.

WHY do YOU need to attend a training session?
First, if you take the training you are NOT obligated to join ALLIES. The information offered during the session can help you make up your mind if you want to join. For those that become an ALLY, the training session offers a chance to learn about issues facing LGBTQ individuals and how to respond if someone needs support.
