As an all-inclusive group, Berg Allies brings together LGBTQ and straight students to support each other, provide a safe place to socialize and create a platform to fight for racial, gender, LGBTQ, and economic justice.
We work as a signal to incoming students of all sexual, affectional, intersex, and gender-expansive identities that they are welcome here on Heidelberg’s campus, in their classrooms, and living spaces. It is an important value of ours that everyone knows they are not just welcomed, but valued and championed.
Some functions we hold are:
- AIDs awareness events
- Drag Shows
- Celebrations of Coming Out Day
- Chosen Family Dinner
- Providing resources at local Pride events
Berg Allies was integral in a student-led movement to help identify and get 21 bathrooms on campus reassigned as inclusive bathrooms, forging ways to ensure an inclusive and safe campus experience for all!
