- The Middlebury Open Queer Alliance (MOQA) is an organization for students of ALL genders and sexualities. Its primary goals are 1) pursuing education and activism around queer issues, 2) providing a safe space for queer individuals and allies, 3) coordinating support resources for questioning and closeted students, and 4) organizing social events for Middlebury College’s queer and ally communities. At meetings, members plan activities and events to raise awareness of queer issues on campus and also hold discussions about queerness and all things that intersect with it (race, ethnicity, disability, class, nationality, spirituality, etc.). Weekly meetings are held Sunday at 8 P.M. in the Chellis House (the white house behind Proctor Dining Hall to the right of the Queer Studies House).
- The People’s Gender Council of Middlebury is a grassroots group of Middlebury students, staff, and faculty harnessing the passion of anti-oppression activists and experts to effect broad, systemic, policy-oriented change. It practices coalitional politics in bringing together various groups to pursue issues through a gendered lens: all are highly encouraged to get involved by bringing their ideas to the Council, which seeks to cut through red tape by reaching directly to policymakers.
