The Faith Action Network will hold a training Dec. 11 in Ann Arbor for those interested in taking back the faith perspective on LGBT issues from the religious right. The training will cover skills in nonviolent dialogue, coalition building, and inclusive Justice.
According to FAN, “People of Faith must come together to work for LGBT rights and recognition in Michigan, now more than ever. The Religious Right has attempted to monopolize the faith perspective in Michigan on LGBT issues. The Faith Action Network seeks to build genuine relationships among diverse Communities of Faith in order to create a strong, spiritual voice for true inclusive justice for all people.”
For the last two years, FAN has been mobilizing people of faith in Michigan to fight discriminatory policy proposals that target LGBT individuals and their families and proactively work towards a more just and inclusive state for all people. In the wake of recent anti-LGBT ballot victories, FAN will be expanding its efforts to recruit and train volunteers to reach out to increased numbers of Communities of Faith across Michigan.
FAN relies on a coalition of volunteers, supporters, and partners to creatively carry out its work and invites you to join them for the Outreach Volunteer Training Dec. 11 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at the Friends Meeting House (1420 Hill Street) in Ann Arbor. To attend, RSVP by Dec. 8 to Natalie Holbrook at 734-761-8283 ext. 6 or [email protected]
