Community Partnership with the UP Center

GSLIS and the Mix-it-Up Grant are pleased to announce that a partnership with the Champaign County Uniting Pride (UP) Center has been established. This is a community organization that focuses on the needs of both youth and adult Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Ally (LGBTQA) folks within Champaign County. In addition to occupying a safe-space for community members to come together and strengthen social ties, they also put on multiple annual events for the greater community to participate in and spread awareness of the LGBTQA presence within Champaign County.

I feel as though I may not be doing them justice, but I would highly suggest that you check out their website: They are a really great organization and have accomplished a considerable amount for only being established for a little over two years. We anticipate great things will result from this partnership and cannot wait to share our successes with you all!
