THE STEP TEAM FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
The Step Team for Social Justice is the premiere performance advocacy group of The Fort Washington Collegiate church. Through its partnership with the Global Youth Leadership Institute, these global ambassadors use step, dance, spoken word, music and song to educate, advocate, and champion pro-social causes.
Lead by Rev. Melvin Miller, Minster for Social Justice, this group of pre-professional artist-athletes and social innovators, ranging in age from 16 to 35, collaborate across lines of race, culture, gender, sexual orientation and religion to utilize their unique gifts and talents in service to create an equitable and just world for everyone. Through performance tours, lecture demonstrations, sports and arts education workshops, the team is committed to themes of peace, justice, love and equality for every human being.
BELIEVE OUT LOUD
The Fort Washington Collegiate Church is a proud supporter of the “Believe Out Loud” Campaign.
At its core, this is what Believe Out Loud is about – helping churches live out this Christian principle by becoming fully inclusive of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Believe Out Loud is a collection of clergy and lay leaders, LGBT activists, and concerned individuals, working together to help the Protestant community become more welcoming to gays and lesbians.
Using community organizing and social marketing strategies, we support individuals and churches in their efforts toward LGBT inclusion. A partnership of the country’s leading LGBT advocacy groups, both religious and secular, Believe Out Loud seeks to accelerate the existing Christian movement toward LGBT inclusion and significantly increase the number of local churches and denominations that are fully-inclusive of LGBT individuals, both in practice and policy. In doing so, we seek to create a widespread Christian movement for LGBT equality in the church and in broader society.
It’s not enough for us to silently believe that all are equal in God’s eyes. It is time for us to put our beliefs into action.
Break the silence. Join the movement. Believe Out Loud.
I was thirsty and you gave me to drink.
