LGBTQ+ people daily face discrimination in such areas as employment, healthcare, education, and public accommodations. Presently in the U.S., there is surge of both anti-LGBTQ+ civil legislation and anti-transgender policies in the church. Globally, few countries provide adequate protections for LGBTQ+ people, who still remain criminalized in some instances.
This workshop will help participants understand why and how Catholics can support non-discrimination initiatives for LGBTQ+ people in both church and society.
Based on New Ways Ministry’s book, A Home for All: A Catholic Call for LGBTQ+ Non-Discrimination, the program includes presentations, discussions, small group activities, and discernment about how participants can work against discrimination.
The workshop can be hosted in-person, either as a half day or full day program. It can also be presented virtually as a one-part or multi-part program.
