Anti-Hate Organization Statement

As an LGBTQ+ centering, intersectional organization, Q+ is an anti-hate organization that condemns:

  • White supremacy.
  • Cis-heteropatriarchy.
  • Anti-LGBTQIA+ violence including any acts of homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, queerphobia, and other acts of violence against LGBTQIA+ folx that produce harm, hurt, separation, exclusion, assault, harassment, directly or indirectly.
  • Anti-Trans* violence and transphobic acts of violence targeting Transgender communities, especially Black Trans women, across the country. Similarly, this violence is not new, however, should not be normalized. The murder and killing rate of Transgender folx, especially Trans women of color, requires immediate action and upmost importance.
  • Anti-Asian sentiment and racist acts of violence targeting Asian American communities across the country. Discrimination against Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities is not new, and acknowledging the country’s long history of xenophobia, racism, and perpetuation of marginalized communities is an important step in working towards anti-racism (one of our driving missions under Q+). However, our organization is committed to continuing collaborations with Hmong American Involving Students (HAIS), Asian Student Association (ASA), and other Multi-Cultural clubs and associations.
  • Anti-Black violence and other racist acts of violence targeting Black communities and all communities of color. With a long history of racial violence, racism, xenophobia, and other related forms of racial and ethnic violence.
  • Anti-Islamic, Anti-semitic, or Anti-Muslim violence and any acts of islamophobia or other acts of violence against non-Christians that produce harm, hurt, separation, exclusion, assault, harassment, directly or indirectly. Our organization is committed to continuing involvement and collaboration with International and Intercultural Student Services and advocating for more inclusive prayer spaces that are accessible and available to Islam, Muslim, Jewish, and other non-Christian students.
  • All forms of microaggressions.
