KEEPING THE FAITH EVENTS NOVEMBER 1st –6th

Please join CA Faith for Equality, Marriage Equality USA, Equality California, Courage Campaign, Progressive Jewish Alliance, and a number of other organizations to “Keep the Faith” for equality during the first week of November. At the one year anniversary of the passage of Proposition 8, we will stand together, not looking back, but moving forward. We will celebrate the progress that has been made in the past year, both in the secular and religious communities. We will renew our support for our friends in Maine and Washington State as they face ballot measures which would strip same-sex couples of relationship protections. Through interfaith prayer, song, and reflection, we are “Keeping the Faith” for equality for all people. Local leaders, secular, people of faith and clergy, from our various organizations are helping organize this partnership between LGBTI activists and LGBTI inclusive communities of faith. If you would like to organize a Keeping the Faith event you can download the Keeping the Faith Resource Kit, including a sample liturgy and sample talking points by clicking here and send an email to Kerry Chaplin [kerry@cafaithforequality.org] who will put you in contact with other affirming congregations and community leaders in your area who are interested in forming an organizing team with you. Together, we have an opportunity to come together as a community, secular and faith-driven alike, to demonstrate that Prop 8 has made us stronger and more vigilant throughout California – and even across the nation. Below is a listing of events currently scheduled for “Keeping the Faith”. For additional information and resources please visit www.keepingthefaithforequality.org .
