#DanicaRoemWins #TransPride


Throughout the last year, the OEP community listened and witnessed as the voices for justice and peace in the LGBTQ+ community continued to be raised in the church and beyond.

OEP participated in Brethren Mennonite Council for LGBT Interests and Supportive Communities Network joint offerings at Annual Conference including insight sessions and a worship service and a healing event in Grand Rapids, along with co-sponsoring with them a conference on intersectionality.

Across the nation, the LGBTQ+ community and its supporters joined together in celebrating the election of the first transgender member of the Virginia House of Delegates, Danica Roem. An OEP-LGBTQ+ Justice community of practice has been formed to continue supporting these and other efforts in the coming years.
