NAACP Supports LGBT & Marriage Equality

We're grateful for the passionate and clear commitment of Benjamin Todd Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP to LGBT and marriage equality. The NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. In 2008, at age 35, he became the youngest person to serve as its chief executive. Jealous offered the opening keynote address at Creating Change last night. Creating Change is the National Conference on LGBT equality and this is the 24th annual conference produced by NGLTF.

Personal Transformation

Personal Transformation

Given the gender-phobia, homophobia and heterosexism of our culture and our faith traditions, far too often LGBT people experience themselves as powerless victims. In order to build strong leaders, our movement must help individuals move from a sense of disempowerment to one of agency, empowerment and action. Workshops in the area of Personal Transformation will focus on helping participants make the move to empowerment and action.


Intersectionality

Intersectionality"

It has been said that Sunday morning at 11:00 am is the most segregated hour in America. If our multi-faith movement is to be successful, it is incumbent upon us to engage issues of race, class, ability, age and embodiment as we talk about gender identity and sexual orientation. Workshops in this area will explore the ways in which anti-oppression work is at its best and most effective when it engages the intersections of oppressions.

Skills-Building

Skills-Building

As a pro-LGBT faith movement, we need leaders who have the tools and training to act proactively and strategically. Workshops in this area will offer new tools and training for participants in the areas of faith-based community organizing, media training, board development, fund-raising, research, theology, capacity-building and other concrete skills.
