Harming LGBT kids undermines the witness. Watch this video to learn more. 


Pledge to Save yOur Kids! 

LGBT youth who are highly rejecting by their families are 8 times more likely to attempt suicide in young adulthood, compared with peers whose families were not at all rejecting or only a little rejecting. Regardless of how we interpret scripture, we must come together to discuss how we can save these kids.  So, I pledge to Save yOur Kids! by being compassionate and open to dialogue with others who might interpret scripture differently from me in order to end the harm that is leaving hundreds of thousands of kids with the belief that they are better off on the street than at home.

Save yOur Kids! will directly engage Christian institutions, pastors, congregations, and the media to address the underlying causes responsible for the crisis of the staggering suicide rate among LGBT kids and the tragedy that children have to choose between being authentic to themselves or having a roof over their head.  

We will start by educating the media and conservative faith communities of this crisis to enable a conversation focused on our mutual concern for these kids and pressing need to find a solution

We will directly engage the conservative media, denominations, colleges, and leaders who most vocally stigmatize the LGBT community.  

We will seek solutions, lifting up those open to dialogue and to working toward the changes necessary to address the problem.  

We will not refrain from confronting the worst leaders and institutions intent on continuing the harm by speaking directly to their members and funders in terms those communities can relate to. 

Media: 

Educate and equip mainstream media to talk about faith and engage and balance religious media. 

Engagement with U.S. Christians: 

Communicate with over 100 million faith and values voters and assemble training programs for key influencers, including affirming clergy and clergy in their midst of changing their views. 

 Medical Advisory:

Assemble a prestigious group of medical professionals to clearly articulate the public mental health crisis faced by over 1 million LGBT teens in the United States. 

Accreditation:  

Asking accrediting bodies of colleges and universities to provide better oversight to block the worst abuses and create a different angle to approach their harmful teachings and policies.
