This workshop will apply a historical, modern, and intersectional lens to LGBTQ+ Pride, as well as share ways to incorporate critical components of racial equity, diversity, and inclusion within our congregations and communities. We will learn about some of the ways people from various marginalized backgrounds (including members of the LGBTQ+ community) experience marginalization in our communities, and how to create more affirming and inclusive communities. We will also learn some shared inclusive language as well as tools that will help us disrupt oppressive behaviors and create a community of belonging that we all strive for.
This workshop is open for all. We highly encourage congregational leadership, program professionals, and membership/engagement professionals to attend. In addition, those with family members and loved ones who identify as LGBTQ+ may find this workshop very helpful.
