PRISM is an organization that aims to provide a safe, space for Queer and/or Trans People of Color. It is an organization that is meant to advocate for the Social/Political presence on campus for QTPOC’s. We hope to educate others about the nuances relating to the various intersectional identities that the community is comprised of. The organization also strives to raise awareness of issues afflicting the QTPOC community.

As the official LGBTQ organization of Loyola University Chicago, Rainbow Connection is a resource to the University and all of its parts and strives to fulfill the call for cura personalis directed under the Ignatian charisma.
