Berg Equality is dedicated to promoting equal rights to all people, regardless of gender, race, sexuality, disability, or age. This group was once known as "Berg Allies" and primarily focused on supporting LGBTQ community. While we're still about showing our support and creating a safe campus environment, we have just expanded the groups of people we would like to include. This group is truly about promoting basic human rights to everyone.
We are a part of the Heidelberg Community that helps to do several things such as: -Inform the community about choices regarding healthy decisions about their body, sex, gender, and sexuality. -Inform the community on sexual and reproductive issues and how they can be involved with the reproductive justice movement. -Assist to create a safe environment on campus that promotes sexuality and gender expression and exploration. -Help advocate for the overall sexual well-being, health, and positive sexual image of individuals on and off campus. -Embrace sexuality as a universal, positive, and healthy component of human development.
