Persist! Transgender Justice
On Thursday, September 14, at 7pm, Rio Texas MFSA will begin our 2017-2018 year with the program focus, Persist! This topic is not a political challenge as much as it is an encouragement to work for social justice in areas impacting persons marginalized by society.
Our first meeting will focus on justice for transgender individuals. Robin Richard will speak on the ups and downs of learning that her child is transgender. Robin and her husband Dale have been members of University UMC, Austin for several years. Their son, Connor, was confirmed as a member of the United Methodist Church last year and also “came out”. Connor has been living as a female for this past year and is keeping the name Connor. We appreciate Robin sharing this personal information to help us better understand the challenges their family has faced.
We invite you to join us at Saint John’s UMC, 2140 Allandale Rd. for this special discussion. Contact Rowland Curry firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Join us at 6:30p for snacks. The program begins at 7p. All are welcome.
