FAN seeks workshop and caucus proposals for Together in Faith 2005

By |2018-01-15T19:59:38-05:00December 23rd, 2004|Uncategorized|

The Faith Action Network is looking for proposals that provide new information, skills, tools and networks to help attendees at the 2005 Together in Faith conference create LGBT-affirming cities and faith communities. Together in Faith is hosted by FAN, a project of the Michigan office of The American Friends Service Committee Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues Program.
Last spring, “Together in Faith: Journey into Inclusiveness” brought together over three hundred people of all ages, races, religions and spiritualities from around the country for skill-enhancing workshops led by nationally renowned activists, and community-building activities with like-minded progressive people of faith, spirit, and conscience.
Proposed workshops are to consist of prepared presentations with stated, specific learning goals, with some time for group discussion, and are to last 90 minutes. Caucuses are to last the same length of time, but consist of an interactive group dialogue with a stated topic and specific goals. Possible workshop or caucus topic examples include, but aren’t limited to, “Ex-Gay Ministries,” “Marriage Equality,” and “Reclaiming Spirituality.”
Presenters are responsible for their own lodging costs, but will be able to attend the entire conference free of charge.
