Mission

QSP2 logo

QSP2 is a student group created to bring together lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, pansexual, and all other queer-identifying students at the school of Social Policy and Practice. The group’s mission is to provide a safe space for queer students to connect, support one another, and engage in activism for the LGBTQ+ community. QSP2 operates under the belief that equal rights, services, and representation cannot be achieved if some members of the LGBTQ community are forgotten. We stand in solidarity with our Black and Trans members, and total group solidarity is expected of all members.

This mission statement is a living document to be reviewed regularly by active group members.
