Washington, D.C.—POSTPONED—Faith in America’s Save yOUr Kids! Congressional Reception cen- tered around National Suicide Prevention Week has been postponed until a later date. The Save yOur Kids! coalition will continue to bring attention to the staggering rates of suicide and mental anguish caused to LGBT youth throughout the country by bringing together LGBT, medical, and allied leaders. Please follow along at www.save-your-kids.org.

“Legislators have more impact on preventing teen suicide than they might understand. We need their leadership in legislation and the words they say in their communities to help end this epidemic,” said Mitchell Gold, Co-Founder of Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams and Faith in America. “This week, during National Suicide Prevention Week, we call upon all Democrats, Republicans and independents to open their minds and hearts. It’s especially important for Republican legislators to understand that LGBT teens growing up in conservative homes are far more likely to suffer mental anguish and even suicide.”

We are directly calling upon all religious denominations to once and for all end the practice of teaching that “homosexuality is a sin.” More information can be found at faithinamerica.org.
