AllianceQ echoes UCC's commitment to love and justice in action amidst anti-LGBTQ bills

Anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ legislation across the country is threatening individuals, families and our faith communities.

AllianceQ echoes the UCC’s commitment to love and justice in action amidst anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ legislation. We urge the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to join us in condemning hate and discrimination — and embodying our faith.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of our church’s resolution to “Become a People of Welcome and Grace to All.” How are we embodying this? It’s been four years since the church adopted GA-1929, “An Invitation to Education for Welcoming and Receiving the Gifts of Transgender and Gender-Diverse People.” Are we the church we say we are?

On March 10, 2023, UCC leadership wrote:

“Trans youth are sacred members of our collective kin-dom. Now more than ever, trans youth need us. And, in this rupturing moment of violence, our Christ-centered response can be one of returning to abundance that God gives us to flourish.”

Join AllianceQ and a growing collaborative of Disciples and ecumenical ministry partners for “In the Light of Day: A Transgender Day of Visibility Vigil” on March 31.

We are celebrating our trans and gender-expansive siblings — God’s beloved creation — and we are bringing to light the discrimination and violence the community faces. We will shine our lights and work for trans justice every day.

On Friday, March 31, join us for the day, for several hours, or for an hour. We will conclude our vigil by joining in worship with the Transmission Ministry Collective (TMC). Full details and registration for access to the vigil here.
