Beyond Bashing: A Faith Response to End Anti-LGBT Violence

Friday, February 8, 2013 - 7:00pm to Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 12:15pm

Many faith leaders, however, are firm in our commitment that all people deserve to live in safety and freedom and that violence is never the appropriate response to our differences.
