Project #RUAllyship

Four people at a Project RU Allyship event

What is Project #RUAllyship?

Project #RUAllyship is an initiative meant to unite the campus community around issues of social justice, diversity and community building. The month long-series will create coordinate opportunities for students, faculty, and administrators to deepen their understanding of the experiences of others, and raise awareness of the individual and collective injustices that confront many in our society. Working from an intersectional and intercultural understanding of oppression, the entire campus community will be challenged to examine stereotypes and prejudice through events, a photo campaign, the campus wide RU Allyship Pledge!


Free Rapid HIV Testing and PrEP & HIV Information

As we work to destigmatize and decolonize sex we understand HIV testing is vital to breaking down stigmas and educating about HIV.

Nearly 40% of new HIV infections are transmitted by people who don't know they have the virus. For people with undiagnosed HIV, testing is the first step in maintaining a healthy life and preventing HIV transmission.

So we have great news! We have two opportunities for you to get tested at our very own Center for Latino Arts & Culture (CLAC) and the Paul Robeson Cultural Center (PRCC). Every person tested will receive a $5 gift card and be entered for a chance to win $50 gift card.




The Stroll Screening w/Kristen Lovell

Join us for a Movie Screening of The Stroll as we work during Project #RUAllyship month to destigmatize and decolonize sex! Stay for a conversation with one of the directors Kristen Lovell.

The Stroll is a documentary about transgender women of color during the 1990s and early 2000s engaging in sex work in the Meatpacking District of Lower Manhattan told from the point of view of transgender sex workers who lived and worked there. Their stories recount the violence, policing, and gentrification that lead to a movement for transgender rights.

You know we love LOVE here at SJE and what better way to end our Project #RUAllyship Month with a conversation that destigmatizes sex and centers healthy relationships! 


Join us for an engaging facilitated discussion with newly engaged couple John & Willy! We will talk about intersectional identities, and navigating healthy HIV discussions while being grounded in LOVE!
