LGBT Rights & Faith Leaders

Rev. Fred Davie, Executive Vice President at Union Theological Seminary in New York will host a press conference Friday, December 9th at 9:30A with Evangelical & other faith leaders from around the country to promote a pro-LGBTQ public policy agenda for the Trump Administration & new Congress. Presenters at the event will highlight why they support the LGBTQ community because of their faith & not in spite of it. The policy agenda will focus on five key areas proposed by faith leaders: LGBTQ basic rights, LGBTQ homeless youth, LGBTQ senior citizens, the transgender community & global anti-discrimination. Support for LGBTQ rights & equality continues to grow among religious Americans particularly Christians. As the culture wars of the past fade away, many faithful Americans - conservative Christians in particular - are increasingly seeing LGBTQ equality as integral to their religious values and their calling to love their neighbors as they do themselves. The press conference is co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Community of Churches, the Human Rights Campaign, the National LGBTQ Task Force, Auburn Seminary, SAGE, Cathedral of Hope, the Center for African American Religion, Sexual Politics and Social Justice at Columbia University, Covenant Baptist UCC, Evangelicals for Marriage Equality & the Tyler Clementi Foundation. The event will take place at The National Press Club Conference rooms Murrow/White/Lisgor 529 14th Street NW Washington, DC.
