DETROIT – The Faith Action Network, a statewide interfaith alliance of Michigan people of faith working to secure positive outcomes on LGBT policy issues, will host a training workshop April 2. Workshop participants will gain skills in outreach, relationship development, nonviolent dialogue, and community organizing. Participants will also be given the tools to develop their own local Faith Action Network Circle. The workshop will utilize principles of nonviolence as the foundation for all activities.
The workshop will be held at Full Truth Fellowship of Christ Church at 4458 Joy Rd. in Detroit from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The April 2 event is part of a statewide initiative to help local groups create Faith Action Network Circles. These local chapters will be equipped to successfully address issues that are relevant to their specific communities while receiving support from the larger statewide network. Future trainings will be held in Ludington on April 22-23 and in Marquette on May 20-21.
FAN brings together clergy, lay leaders, and individuals from diverse spiritual backgrounds. An emphasis is placed on building genuine relationships across political and philosophical divides. FAN training workshops are mobilizing Michigan people of faith to successfully advocate for the rights and recognition of LGBT individuals and their families.
