Chicago, IL — It began in 2011 at a meeting in Tucson, where the national Coordinating Team of the Church Within A Church Movement looked for a way to share the message that God is Love, not hate. A year later, a video legacy project was launched at the Church Within A Church Movement's (CWACM) 10th anniversary celebration. Now, Pride month 2013, the dream will become real.
The inclusion of LGBT people in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) signed into law by President Obama on March 7, 2013 enables the discussion of the needs of transgender folks, their families and friends. This is an opening into the real life of the community in so many ways.
Chicago, IL — A legacy project will be launched at the Church Within A Church Movement’s (CWACM) 10th anniversary celebration in Chicago, the weekend of October 19-21, 2012. The project titled “My God is not a Bully!” is a collaboration between Chicago’s E3 Radio innovator, Anna DeShawn, and the CWAC Movement.
CWAC Movement executive director, cathy knight says of the project,
“the Church Within A Church Movement wants LGBTQ youth to know there is another side to the story. We want to share a message that God loves them and that however you define God, in all traditions, God is Love, not a bully. With Anna’s collaboration and enthusiasm for the project, we will begin video production in October and launch one video each day during the month of June 2013.”
