The theme of this year’s summit is Creating Space for Social Justice. Securing human dignity for others and ourselves is not just a laudable goal, but a necessary part of our expression of faith. Our faith communities must be educated and inspired to embrace the inclusion and affirmation of our transgender, queer, intersex, transsexual and gender non-conforming members. This is the rallying call for the CLGS Transgender Religious Leaders Summit 2012.
