Sponsored by Join the Impact Massachusetts & Truth Wins Out

BACKGROUND:

On April 1-2, Harvard University will play host to an event called the "Social Transformation Conference," sponsored by the Harvard Extension Service and Leadership Society. This conference will feature some of the most vocal, aggressive, and virulent leaders from the religious right - people who blame homosexuality, Islam, and women's rights for the downfall of America.

These people also have direct financial ties to efforts in Uganda to pass an Anti-Homosexuality Bill that would institute the death penalty or life imprisonment for LGBT people.

Join us in protesting this conference and sending the message that hate is not welcome at Harvard or anywhere else!

Take a stand for equal rights NOW! We need your presence and we need your voices!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

The guests at this conference include...

Dr. Lance Wallnau, who recently said: "You've got Islam invading the United States. So you've got your homosexual activity, your abortion activity here, Islam coming in, you've got a financial collapse -- all of this, to those of us who are Christians, is an apocalyptic confirmation that when you remove God from public discourse, when you don't line up your thinking with kingdom principles, you inevitably hit an iceberg like the Titanic and you go down."

Os Hillman, who is a close colleague and financial backer of a minister in Uganda named Julius Oyet, who has perhaps been the most vocal religious leader urging for passage of the country's Anti-Homosexuality Bill, colloquially known as the "Kill the Gays" bill.

Larry Bizette, who fought against efforts in Baton Rouge to recognize LGBT people, by telling city leaders that if they recognized gay folks, it would be akin to honoring "sin" and an "abomination."
