One Big Family Photo Solidarity Project
May, 2013

Buena Vista United Methodist Church (BVUMC) in Alameda, CA voted to be a reconciling church in 2006. On May 5, 2013, in partnership with BVUMC's Reconciling Ministry, NRJ again hosted a booth at the annual BVUMC Bazaar. We displayed photos taken at the Bazaar in 2009 for the One Big Family Photo Solidarity Project and gave out Blessed stickers and rainbow cross lollipops. We invited attendees to join the project and stand in solidarity with LGBTQ people by taking their picture holding a sign that read, "I am Christian and I stand in solidarity with LGBTQ people" or another solidarity message of their choice. The BVUMC community was excited about the opportunity to show solidarity for LGBTQ people.

We invite you to join the One Big Family photo solidarity project. If you'd like to be a part of the project, send your photo and written consent for us to use the photo to lauren@netrj.org.
