HRC Arkansas, along with Quapaw Quarter United Methodist Church, Just Communities of Arkansas and Arkansas Association of Black Professionals, have built a coalition to support “The Jump Off.” The Jump Off is a series of conversations through a social justice lens designed to move us beyond deep conversation to direct action. These conversations mobilize us to continue the fight for full equality and total liberation for every member of our community.
For two weeks during the month of April, the conversation series will focus on Faith and Sexuality. There are two gatherings: April 14, Religion as a Weapon For/Against Sexuality, and April 28, The Effects of Household Codes on Acceptable Sexual Relations. The entire community is invited to join us around the table where every voice is valued and every perspective honored. We firmly believe that through conversations such as these, progress is made toward full equality and total liberation for all.
