An Intro to the Lasallian Women and Gender Resource Center

The Lasallian Women and Gender Resource Center is a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community, any race, religion, or gender.  The center opened in October of 2018 to help the Manhattan College community become a safer space for students to express themselves. The goal of the LWGRC is to educate our students on gender issues, sex, and they strive to prevent sexaul assult.

The LWGRC hosts many events, but the most recent one was “ Nomination Night.”

On the evening of March 8th, also International Women’s Day, The Lasallian Women and Gender Resource Center hosted “Nomination Night” for students who help promote activism and feminism around Manhattans campus. The students who attended were gifted with a letter thanking them for their work, a copy of the students bill of rights, pamphlets from the Women and Gender Center and from the Bronx District Attorney's Office, a transgender awareness week reading list, and a list of national hotlines and websites for multiple types of sexual and gender based issues. If you would also like to be gifted, the LWGRC gives out free lube and condoms to students to help promote safe sex.
