(JTA) — The Yeshiva University student councils reinstated a group that had lost its official status on campus after organizing a protest march connected to gay rights.

The councils decided on the reinstatement of the College Democrats club days after refusing to renew recognition of the club.

The club saw its recognition withdrawn shortly after its members called for the establishment of a Gay-Straight Alliance Club and for permission to be granted to host LGBTQ events on campus.

Last week’s march by about 100 people led to the group being briefly “barred from running events, hanging up fliers on campus and receiving funding from student activity fees,” according to the student newspaper.

The club had been warned of the move if it went ahead with the march.
