Clergy Call for Justice and Equality is being held May 22-24, 2011 in Washington, DC. Registration for this years conference is $50. Get more information and register here.
“In 2009, 250 clergy and religious leaders from all backgrounds and faith traditions joined us in Washington to make history by standing as a unified voice for justice and equality. Together they brought that voice to Capitol Hill ensuring Congress knew that people of faith believed in fairness for LGBT people.
Religious leadership has been critical to the successes we have seen: the passage of the “Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act,” marriage equality in 5 new states and the District of Columbia, and the legislative repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” We have made huge strides but much more remains to be done. Join us this May as we continue to build a faithful movement that advocates for LGBT rights, locally and nationally.”
