Students at a Christian college in California are trying to organize an LGBTQ+ Pride club -- but they're running into serious opposition from the school administration.
A senior and Navy veteran at Fresno Pacific University (FPU), which is affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren Church, got approval from his student government to form the club as part of a project for his Christian Leadership class -- but then the administration stepped in, paused the club, and demanded a vote from the university Board of Trustees.
FPU's Trustees are meeting this Saturday, October 23, to decide the fate of the Pride club. We need to make sure they know this isn't just a local issue.
Will you add your name before Saturday's vote to support the student organizers, and to show the FPU Trustees that Christians across the country are watching and praying their decision honors the dignity of all people created in God's image?
