As hate becomes more vocal, visible, and violent, Faith for Pride is placing a critical new emphasis on the unique, important role that faith communities can play in defending LGBTQ+ communities and Pride celebrations from anti-LGBTQ+ hate and extremism. This Pride month, equip yourself to show up as a force for de-escalation, solidarity, and reporting of violent extremism.
