On Tuesday, February 28, 2012, members of the 4 to 5 Movement at the University of Notre Dame released "It Needs to Get Better -- A Message from the 4 to 5 Movement." The video was created in the midst of the call on campus for the University to officially recognize its gay-straight alliance student club and to include "sexual orientation" in its nondiscrimination clause.

It is the firm affirmation of all those working tirelessly for an inclusive environment that it needs to get better. It needs to get better because how we currently define our Notre Dame family excludes those who identify as GLBTQ. It needs to get better because our Catholic identity suffers until it does. It needs to get better because we have an obligation as humans, Christians, and Fighting Irish to those who identify as GLBTQ to create a more welcoming environment in which truly none are strangers and all may flourish. It needs to get better because these are the formative years of our lives and no one, not one person, should be leaving Notre Dame bitter because it did not do enough to stop the harassment and discrimination that exist. It needs to get better because it is our moral obligation to make it so.

Created as part of the 4 to 5 Movement.
Produced by Brenna Williams.
Directed by Alex Coccia.
