Bylaws Change Adoption:
Alice B. Toklas LGBTQ Club Bylaws Change Adoption: YES
 
The bylaws amendments would replace the word ‘transgender’ with the word ‘trans’ and add the word ‘queer’ and the letter ‘Q’ to LGBT so that all places that presently say ‘LGBT’ would say ‘LGBTQ’ wherever the Club’s name is stated in the bylaws. There were some non-substantive numbering changes to other parts of the bylaws.
 
Club Policy Adoption:
Alice B. Toklas LGBT Club Policy Plank Adoption: YES
 
We urge city, state, and federal officials to center the voices of Black communities when discussing both the reinvestment of money into Black communities and extending reparations to Black communities. 
As the systematic oppression of our Black neighbors and colleagues continues locally, across the state, and nationally, we find it important now more than ever to focus on dismantling systems and practices that have perpetuated that oppression. This also includes our own experiences as well. We believe that dismantling these systems starts with centering the experiences and voices of Black communities, including our own members. It is important that Black communities are supported wholeheartedly when offering solutions and ideas to uplift their communities. Consequently, we also believe that it is not the place of non-Black community members to prescribe what those solutions should be and/or look like even as well-intentioned allies. The best way to serve as allies is to uplift the voices of the Black community and not to become the voices of Black communities.
