Yes We Can! How to Have Productive Conversations about LGBT Equalityâ€¦ even with mean people
Often, many of us find ourselves as “involuntary activists” on issues of LGBT rights and inclusion. And often, many of us become dispirited at the challenges of having conversations with people with whom we disagree. Can we do better?
You bet we can! In this empowering workshop, longtime LGBT religious activist, author of “God vs. Gay? The Religious Case for Equality,” and founder of the national LGBT organization Nehirim Jay Michaelson will share seven proven ways to have better conversations about religion and sexuality, based on his work with successful marriage equality campaigns in Minnesota and Maryland. By identifying where change can (and cannot) happen, we can make measurable progress â€” even with people who seem dead set in their ways.
