Creating Space at the Table

Gender development and identity is not often talked about in faith communities. However, with gender impacting everyone and 41 percent of gender diverse individuals reporting attempting suicide, there is a growing need for all people to learn to love these individuals and create gender inclusive spaces.

On Monday, September 24 at 7 p.m. in the Culbertson Room we will be lead by the Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital in a session that provides attendees with the opportunity to understand how to support transgender and gender expansive people in church. We will review key terms, recognize the positive impact that their support can have, and receive an overview of best practices.

This session is jointly sponsored by A Joyful Noise Preschool and Adult Education at Kenilworth Union. For additional information, please contact Jo Forrest.
