Home > Events > Learn > And Justice for All: Passover, Freedom, & the Jewish Imperative for LGBTQ+ Rights
From generation to generation, Passover both ties us to our past and forces us to look at our present as we connect the struggle for freedom in Egypt to the pressing causes and urgent challenges of today.
Across the country, hateful anti-LGBTQ+ legislation is on the rise. Lives are being threatened, identities questioned, and their very existence is called into question.
Join us Wednesday, April 20th at 7 pm at Washington Hebrew Congregation for a special event as we celebrate LGBTQ+ freedoms and offer a road map for understanding, action, and compassion. A nosh will be provided.
Our event will include:
Thanks to the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) for their support.
Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We strengthen Jewish communities. We equip Jewish organizations with the skills and knowledge to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces in which all queer Jewish youth feel seen and valued, and advance LGBTQ rights nationwide.
About FreeState Justice
FreeState Justice is a legal advocacy organization that seeks to improve the lives of low-income lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (“LGBTQ”) Marylanders. Despite recent, incremental judicial victories for the national LGBTQ community, the low-income LGBTQ population continues to struggle with legal challenges such as harassment, complex family law issues, and anti-LGBTQ discrimination in employment, housing, foster care, healthcare, and public accommodations. In addition to needing attorneys with specific knowledge of how the law affects LGBTQ citizens, LGBTQ clients need attorneys who will treat them with respect and understanding. FreeState’s mission is to combine direct legal services with education and outreach to ensure that the low-income LGBTQ community in Maryland receives fair treatment in the law and society.
