Allyship: The action of working to end oppression through the support of, and as an advocate with and for, a group other than one’s own (From the LGBTQIA Resource Center at UC Davis)
We are a diverse group of student-athletes at the ICA, club, and intramural levels, staff, trainers, and fans. We believe that sport has the power to build lasting connections and shape communities, as long as there is an equal playing field.
We empower folks to become change-makers through advocacy, education, and events. Together, we can create a more inclusive, positive athletic experience for all and set the standards for Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion in college athletics across the nation.
Anyone who is a UC Davis student or affiliate is encouraged to join, regardless of gender identity, sexuality, or knowledge of the LGBTQIA+ community.
See our events tab for upcoming meetings and be sure to join our mailing list for future updates. Reach out to any one of our Team members or "Contact Us" for any questions or suggestions.
