- National March for Equality, October 10 - 11
For Immediate Release, Monday October 5, 2009
By Affirmation Co-spokesperson Tim Tennant-Jayne
Affirmation: United Methodists for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and
Queer Concerns encourages all members to attend the National March for
Equality. On October 10-11, 2009, we will gather in Washington, DC from all
across America to let our elected leaders know that now is the time for full
equal rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people. We've had
a moment thrust upon us by the election of President Barack Obama and the
spirit of hope and change. We will gather. We will strategize. We will
march. And we will leave energized and empowered to do the work we need to
do in every community across the nation. This is only the beginning.
All United Methodists attending the March are encouraged to contact Chip
Aldridge at caldridge_at_wesleyseminary.edu for information about a time and
place for United Methodists to gather during the weekend.
As an independent voice of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer
people, Affirmation radically reclaims the compassionate and transforming
gospel of Jesus Christ by relentlessly pursuing full inclusion in the Church
as we journey with the Spirit in creating God's beloved community.
Affirmation: United Methodists for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and
Queer Concerns is an activist, all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization
with no official ties to The United Methodist Church.
