Help us end religious-based bullying such as gay conversion therapy by making faith communities safe and supportive places for everyone!
Stand Up to Religious-Based Bullying
On December 4, 2017, we travelled to Biola University to stand up against religious-based bullying such as teaching gay conversion therapy.

Upstander and gay Christian activist shares how religious-based bullying impacted her life and why she stands up to end all bullying and cyberbullying.
“It’s a matter of love and justice. Loving others and treating them justly is a fundamental component to my personal Christian beliefs. If people are being harmed by others, whether it’s physical or verbal; the victim, who is injured will suffer as a result. How human beings can allow and tolerate suffering of the other is egregious. I work in the religious sector specifically, and am especially surprised at this behavior on the part of people who claim to be Christians and their clear unwillingness to love the other as themselves.”
