Inclusion Activism 101 ...

... coming soon to a parish hall near you!

Claiming the Blessing [CTB] and Integrity are co-sponsoring a series of regional workshops to provide local Episcopalians with the information and tools to be more effective advocates for LGBT equality at the diocesan level.
Participants will learn about the status of LGBT issues in the Episcopal Church, the polity of the Episcopal Church at all levels, how to elect and lobby bishops and General Convention deputies, how to submit and pass diocesan convention resolutions, and how to communicate effectively with a variety of target audiences and the media.
The first one was in Oakland just before Easter and still to come are:

South Central Region--March 28-29--Liberty, MO
Southeastern Region--April 11-12--Atlanta, GA
Midwestern Region--April 25-26--Cincinnati, OH
Northeastern Region--May 9-10--Newark, NJ

For more details, check out Walking With Integrity
... and give thanks for those willing to step up and continue to make a difference ... for the trainers and the trainees ... and for all committed to continuing to challenge the church to move forward into God's future of compassion, inclusion, justice, hope and love.

This is what we've been praying for and working toward for many, many years. Alleluia!
