Equality for all people is a cornerstone for Faith Forward members.
We respect the dignity and worth of every North Dakotan and welcome them in our communities.
Many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender North Dakotans have found organized religion to be a source of both peace and pain: some have received support from their faith community, others have been condemned. Faith Forward supports efforts that eliminate LGBT discrimination.
We believe that all North Dakotans should have the freedom to make the deeply personal decisions about their own reproduction. We support access to contraception; comprehensive and evidence-based sex education; and a woman’s right to choose whether and when to have children.
Our religious freedom means we have the right to exercise our own beliefs. Religious freedom also gives us the right not to have others’ religious beliefs forced upon us. We believe that North Dakota should be a place where others’ religions are respected and welcomed, just as North Dakotans should respect and welcome people irrespective of their race, class, sex or ability.
