The Charleston School of Law Alliance for Equality is a gay-straight alliance formed to protect and promote the rights of the LGBT community. It is our mission to be active, educational, social, and supportive. We provide a forum to discuss current rights and social issues, as well as take affirmative action to make changes within the laws and within the community. We offer a safe environment for people of all sexual orientations and a social network free from prejudice. Our membership is open to those who are gay and straight, as well as those open about their sexuality and those who wish to remain private.
