Texas Faith Leaders for Equality – Press Conference

Join religious leaders from diverse faith traditions speaking out in support of full equality for LGBT Texans — and denouncing efforts by state leaders to pass hateful legislation that discriminates against the LGBT community.

Press Conference:
Texas Faith Leaders for Equality
Thursday, Feb. 9, 1:30 p.m. – 2 p.m.
First United Methodist Church (Austin) – Murchison Chapel

Opponents of equality in Texas use religion to justify anti-transgender legislation (“bathroom bills”), discriminatory laws masquerading as “religious freedom,” or other attempts to treat the LGBT community as second-class citizens.

This event will make clear that Texas faith communities reject this misuse of their faith and expect our state to treat ALL Texans equally under the law.

Clergy are encouraged to wear robes, stoles or other liturgical vestments. Lay people are also encouraged to attend to show support.
