As an organization committed to sexual, gender, and reproductive justice, economic justice and addressing the injustices of systemic poverty is an important part of the Religious Institute’s mission. LGBTQ people, especially LGBTQ people of color, transgender, and gender non-conforming people, are more likely to live in poverty than the general population. Poverty is also directly related to one’s ability to access and afford health care, including reproductive health care, and parent one’s children in a safe and healthy environment.
During the 40 Days of Moral Action, the Religious Institute has teamed up with the National LGBTQ Task Force to create a guide to observing these forty days with a particular emphasis on LGBTQ justice and reproductive justice. This guide is designed to give you and your faith community concrete ways to be work toward LGBTQ and reproductive justice during this season of moral revival. It will continue to be updated throughout the 40 Days of Moral Action. Click here to access the weekly action guide.
