Transgender Flag

ERUUF Pride+ and the Multicultural Team are pleased to announce that an educational program called Transgender Inclusion in Congregations is coming in early 2021.  

Members and friends are invited to participate in this six-session online course with additional on-line discussion groups. This exciting opportunity is a result of the generosity of the Eno River Foundation. You will soon hear more about this from our ministers and other leaders.

Prior to the program rolling out, informative resources will be presented by our group. You will see items from the National Center for Transgender Equality, such as an ally guide, as well as documentaries and other films about individual experiences.  Bearing in mind that one person can’t represent the full diversity within any community, this will be a great way to engage in the process of increasing our understanding. You may also want to familiarize yourself with some of the language that you might not be familiar with.

An Employer’s Guide to Using Gender Inclusive Language in the Workplace provides a good resource for inclusive language. We are looking forward to embarking on this journey with you.

If any Transgender or non-binary person in the congregation wants to work with our team, please contact Evelyn Studer at or Diane Blount at .
