For the past five years, Western Oregon University's Werner University Center has housed the Stonewall Center, a resource center for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer community members. Our intentions in the Maurice Undergraduate Initiative Prize Competition were to gain more visibility and adequate space for the GLBTQ community at Western, as well as to encourage members of the community who support the GLBTQ community to put a small symbol in their window of their car, home, dorm window, or other space. We recorded this experience through a documentary, fundraising, and a student support petition.
