Our People Say
Chicago Theological Seminary colleague
I feel like this is such a missing link in the interfaith work I’ve been engaged in. No one ever seems to talk about Christian supremacy and the ways Christianity has been co-opted by systems of power and oppression.
Creating Change workshop attendee
Soulforce appears to do something that no other LGBTQ advocacy group does that I'm aware of - really focus on the power of people's inner spirit in terms of helping people to heal from the damage religious individuals/groups perpetrate against us, as well as help us to reclaim the sources of strength for ourselves that are the foundation of well being and our justice work, whether that's religious or not.
Vacation Bible School attendee
I took away that the Bible isn't as simple as I thought it was, but also that it doesn't have to be complicated. Choosing the life-giving scriptures instead of the death-bringing ones is so simple, but it's the best way I've ever heard anyone interpret the Bible.
We use our store proceeds to fund our practices of solidarity, like booklet translations, kitting out our Global South comrades, and building cooperative partnerships with racial justice movements. Thank you for helping Soulforce generously extend ourselves to the work of collective liberation.
Bring Soulforce to you in person.
