Fired by a vision of a church that transcends cultural prejudices, the Equally Blessed coalition seeks to educate and inspire Catholics to take action on behalf of LGBT people, their families and friends.
The Equally Blessed Coalition is horrified and saddened at the tragic and unnecessary deaths of 50 people at the Pulse Orlando night club on June 12, and we pray for swift recoveries for the additional 53 people who were injured.
During a meeting with Polish bishops while attending World Youth Day, Pope Francis concluded his remarks by complaining that children are being taught “that everyone can choose their gender.” He also called this “ideological colonization” by “very influential countries.”
Members of the Equally Blessed Coalition had this to say, following the Pope's remarks.
Call To Action
Call To Action is not only disappointed and dismayed by his remarks, but believe his willful ignorance is dangerous to those in the transgender community.
The Equally Blessed Coalition stands with the Arcus Foundation, along with dozens of LGBTQ Latinx groups and other allies, to reaffirm our resolve to end violence against marginalized communities following the Orlando tragedy.
