Keeping Faith: Interfaith Prayer Service to Embrace the LGBT Communities before the Supreme Court Marriage Equality Cases

Sunday, April 26, 2015, 4:00pm
Congregation Etz Hayim, 2920 Arlington Boulevard, Arlington
(Parking on South Garfield Street)

On April 28, the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments whether same-sex couples should have the freedom to marry and if state anti-marriage laws should be struck down as unconstitutional.

Join with Northern Virginia faith communities to embrace the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities at this hopeful and vulnerable time.

Please note: Those who identify as male are asked to cover their heads with kipot. Congregation Etz Hayim will provide an ample supply for all to use. Those who identify as female are invited (though not required) to do the same.

Sponsored by the Northern Virginia Network of People of Faith for Equality in Virginia.
Founded in 2006, POFEV is an interfaith network of clergy and lay people working together for greater welcome and affirmation in faith communities and legal equality for LGBT Virginians.
