Label: Purpose & Activities

The purpose of the CLGS Coalition of Welcoming Congregations (CWC) is to bring together religious leaders, LGBT people of faith and their allies from a wide range of religious traditions in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area to form a progressive, effective and madia-savvy voice on matters relating sexuality and religions, homophobia and the enfranchisement of LGBTpeople within society as a whole. In addition, the CWC provides a powerful tool for like-minded individuals to ally themselves and other LGBT people of faith and to make known their views in the current public debates concerning religion, sexuality and LGBT people. An additional goal of the CWC is to demonstrate how churches, synagogues, mosques and other communities of faith can work together to strengthen legal protection to LGBT people and their family members; provide a religious rationale for supporting civil  marriage for lesbian and gay people and initiate public dialogue on a myriad of issues that conservative religious groups so effectively control and manipulate today.

The CWC seeks to serve as useful ally to reduce the harmful effects of homophobia within our society.
