Have You Registered For Creating Change?

Find out at Creating Change--which will be held in Denver from January 28th to February 1st!

Creating Change has "got religion" this year. There will be a day-long institute titled "Empowering and Working with People of Faith" on January 29th geared for those of us who are struggling for equality within the Church. In addition, Integrity will be hosting a workshop titled "How Can You Change What The Bible Says By A Popular Vote?" that will explore how our organization and other LGBT Christian groups are creating change in our respective denominations.

Integrity's board of directors encourages all local Integrity leaders and inclusion activists to consider attending Creating Change. The early-bird registration deadline for Creating Change is November 30th. Click here to register now!
