Event Details

Beyond Bashing: A Faith Response to End Anti-LGBT Violence

Hate crimes based on sexual orientation account for 20% of all hate crimes reported to the FBI in recent years and violence against the transgender community continues at an appalling rate as well. We know that anti-gay religious voices contribute to creating a climate that allows these terrifying crimes to continue at high rates. Many faith leaders, however, are firm in our commitment that all people deserve to live in safety and freedom and that violence is never the appropriate response to our differences.

Join us on Saturday, February 9 as we work together to end violence against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities. The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry (CLGS) is partnering with the Community Relations Service of the US Department of Justice to sponsor a workshop designed to give people of faith practical tools and spiritual inspiration to take action against violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We will hear from Melinda Haag, United States Attorney for the CA Northern District, U.S. Department of Justice; Rev. Lynice Pinkard; Rev. Kamal Hassan; and other members of the law enforcement and faith communities.
 

Registration is just $10; no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Continuing education credits (CEUs) are available from Pacific School of Religion for clergy, therapists and others at no additional charge. 
 

All are welcome—clergy and laity, people of all faiths. We are also seeking small group facilitators for the program, who will participate in a training led by the Department of Justice on Friday, Feb. 1; please email clgs@clgs.org if you are interested in applying to be a facilitator.

Organizer

Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry

The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry (CLGS) was established at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California and opened its doors in the fall of 2000.

The Center serves three distinct but overlapping constituencies: the world of academic religious scholarship; faith communities; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and organizations. For each of these constituent groups, CLGS is committed to providing programming and support for research, resources, education for leadership, and community-building/advocacy. All programming is devoted to carrying out the Center's fundamental mission:

To advance the well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people and to transform faith communities and the wider society by taking a leading role in shaping a new public discourse on religion and sexuality through education, research, community building and advocacy.
