Equality Riders near end of 2006 tour
« on: April 22, 2006, 10:33:14 pm »

Activist students have been  touring 19  college campuses that ban enrolment of GLBT students. 

Take a look at their journy.

Angel Collie of North Carolina is part of the group. Angel is the only
transgender member of the group.

Now traveling throughout the country, the Soulforce Equality Ride is taking 33 young adults on a seven-week bus tour to confront colleges that ban the enrollment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students. These bans devalue the life of LGBT people and slam the door on academic freedom. To make public their case for equality, the young activists on the Equality Ride hold vigils, Bible studies, class discussions, community forums, and press conferences.

Apr. 21 - A promise kept: Equality Riders go to Wheaton

Apr. 20 - Equality Riders find supportive community at Bethel University

Apr. 11 - Equality Riders repeat history lesson: 24 arrested at BYU
