The Safe Zone Project :   

Are you looking to learn about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) identities? The Safe Zone Project has a new online course for self-directed learners. It’s called Self-Guided Foundational Safe Zone Training, You can sign up for the course nowview the course syllabus and content, or read the course FAQ here. The Safe Zone training was adopted as an official training resource at the 80th General Convention D072Resolution on Gender and Sexuality Training.  Each diocese will oversee and document the training of all clergy, Bishops, ordinands, and lay leaders and will issue certificates to participants who successfully complete this training, with training to begin by the 81st General Convention.

The Rainbow Initiative is the Episcopal Migration Ministries’ response to General Convention 2022 Resolution D045 “On Supporting LGBTIQ+ Refugees and Asylum Seekers”,which directed the Episcopal Church to promote support for people who have fled their countries because of persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and/or sex characteristics. The Resolution also directs Episcopal Migration Ministries to focus attention on people subject to such persecution, and to offer information on how they could be better supported.

We hope they speak of courage and belief for a world made more beautiful by these LGBTQ+ Christians and their commitment to a Church where all God’s children are loved and valued.
