Stand Up for Something

The deadline is approaching for your chance to Stand Up against suicide, and for understanding. Come and join us in San Francisco October 8-10 as we work together with Affirmation, the Foundation for Reconciliation, Family Fellowship and others trying to make a safer, more welcoming place for our LGBTQ friends and family.

Friday October 8th we’ll be at San Francisco’s Civic Center where we’ll join others, including The Trevor Project, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and survivors around 6 p.m. to come together and say there have been too many suicides by young gay people. A silent candlelight march from Civic Center up to Harvey Milk Plaza to remember and honor all the lives lost to suicide will finish the evening’s events.

On Saturday from 9 a.m. until about 3 p.m., we’ll be in a workshop environment to create bridges of understanding and develop the kinds of leadership skills and methods that will help break us all out of old patterns and tear down walls of miscommunication. While you can register at the door, if you RSVP on or before September 15th, meeting organizers will be able to plan better for everyone’s needs.

      In another interesting blog post, we have a report on Chuck Cooper’s presentation to BYU law school students. Charles Cooper of Cooper, Cooper and Kirk, has been arguing to defend Prop 8 in the Perry case.
